Gold Diggers of '49

Now that Porky was here, none of the staff knew what to do with him. However, they did know that the directors hired from Disney's would run the stdio into the ground and were quite disgruntled because of this. So, in an attempt to teach them humility, Leon moved these individuals into a run down vacant building in the middle of the Warner Bros. parking lot with an ever-so-slightly experienced director named Tex Avery. Some of the disgruntled employees of note were Bob Clampett and Chuck Jones.
After they had sarcasticly named their new work environment Termite Terrace, thier first order of business was to make some crazy cartoons that would go against what the unwritten norms of toons were back then. Tex's suggestion was to use Porky as much as they could. Although Beans was made the star of this particular cartoon, Porky was great in a supporting role. But, that's when it hit them. Porky himself wasn't a funny character (except for his stuttering gimmick), but he could play straight to any character they threw at him.
Thus, the "Warner rowdy-ism" was born with this cartoon. And it would greatly affect all toons (Warners or otherwise) forever.
