Plot Summary:
A neighborhood bully convinces Porky to take a puff from his cigar, causing Porky to hallucinate a smoke-man named Nick O' Teen, along with a musical number done by cigars, cigarettes and pipes in the likeness of the 3 Stooges, etc. Porky learns his lesson and promises not to smoke again.

What were they thinking? Porky dissapears, the colors are bad...I highly reccomend the B&W version of this cartoon.

Redrawn version notes:

   - Cartoon Network version has the 1956 Looney Tune sheild card in place of the original 1938 sheild card.
   - One of 7 redrawn Looney Tunes still played on Cartoon Network.
   - Long out-of-focus scene looks like it was not animated right.
   - Cel animation does not match up with backgrounds sometimes.
   - A poster has "tonight" as "to night"
   - Ending scene seems un-synchronized with sound.
   - Porky stops moving his lips before he stops talking in the last scene.
   - Closing iris does not close all the way.
   - Cels slide instead of real animation sometimes.
   - Porky is missing from a scene and so is Nick O'Teen's pump.(Pictures by Jon Cooke):

   -Redrawn version edits a brief scene with a Cab Calloway pipe cleaner. (Paul Belanger)

Computer colorized version notes:

   - Colorized in 1992
   - Digital color version edits a brief scene with a Cab Calloway pipe cleaner.
