Cartoon Synopsis:

Everybody has a favorite holiday, so why not celebrate any time you choose? Christmas spirit the year round, Fourth of July patriotism in January, Easter eggs in September. "Why not?" reason the folk of Okefenokee Swamp. "Actually the year is so cluttered up with holidays now there isn;t room for vacations."

Unfortunately one person in the swamp, Porkypine, doesn't celebrate any holidays on account of he is a "norphan" and has nobody to celebrate with.

Pogo Possum and Mlle. Hepzibah, the petite French skunk, decide to right this great wrong by designating a particular day as Porky's birthday, so the entire swamp turns its considerable talents to planning a great surprise birthday party for Porkypine. Only thing is Porky becomes aware a party is planned- but that he hasn't been invited! When he finally does reach the party he is almost overcome when he learns that not only is this a birthday party but a "family" birthday party, an old traditional holiday just invented by Pogo. Porkypine is adopted by everyone and now has a huge family, including aligators (Albert), dogs (Beauregard Bugleboy), owls (Howland), turtles (Churchy La Femme), and apprentice butterflies (Basil and Bugs Fremont).
