Plot Summary:
Porky's going fishing, but his boat careens out of control. He finally settles in and quickly catches several fish, then falls asleep with his line in the water. While he sleeps, a fish catches a dream version of Porky and takes him home to the fish's family. Porky narrowly escapes, but has run-ins with other marine life, only to awaken and throw his catch back.


Review:
Not bad, but there are flaws. The effectiveness of the cartoon is lost when seen redrawn.

Redrawn version notes:

   - Cartoon Network version has the 1956 Looney Tune sheild card in place of the original 1936 sheild card.
   - One of 7 redrawn Looney Tunes still played on Cartoon Network.
   - Irises are yellow in this cartoon.
   - Obvious mis-spelling on title card.
   - Oven has a pink interior...
   - The sequence where Porky's boat is dragged through a boat and underwater was redrawn pretty well.
     
Computer colorized version notes:

   - Colorized in 1992, but Warner Bros. has neglected to send Cartoon Network a copy.
