Cartoon Summary:


As the clock strikes midday, the animators vanish from their desks, abandoning the studio to Porky and Daffy. Jealous of Porky's success in the Looney Tunes cartoon series, Daffy tricks Porky into quitting Looney Tunes and heading for the Warner Brothers lot to go after the big money in a career in live-action features. Poor Porky never gets through the front gate. Frustrated, Porky returns to Termite Terrace, where he sees Daffy trying to take over Porky's job. Porky takes the conniving duck into an empty studio and beats the living bejeezes out of him. He then heads over to real-life Looney Tunes producer Leon Schlesinger's office to try and get his job back. Schlesinger has kept Porky's contract in his desk, and he tells Porky that he'll always have a job at Termite Terrace.
