Porky Pig's Feat is a one-reel animated cartoon short subject in the Looney Tunes series, produced in black-and-white and released to theatres on July 17 1943 by Warner Bros. Pictures. It was produced by Leon Schlesinger and directed by Frank Tashlin, with musical supervision by Carl W. Stalling.

The cartoon centers around Porky Pig and Daffy Duck's attempts to escape the Broken Arms Hotel without paying their bill (on which they are charged for every luxury, including air). They engage in several confrontations versus the hotel's stuffy manager, after Daffy gambles away the pair's money in an ill-fated game of craps.

This cartoon is also notable for a short cameo appearance by Bugs Bunny, the only black and white performance for the character.


  • This cartoon shows what would become an out of character moment for Daffy, as in this cartoon he states, 'Bugs Bunny, my hero!' Later in the cartoon series, Daffy would become a rival of Bugs. The "Leon Schlesinger cartoon" Daffy describes here, in which Bugs grabs a hunter's gun and shoots the hunter down, does not conform to any known Bugs Bunny cartoon.
  • This cartoon is also notable as the first appearance of Raymond Scott's song "Powerhouse" in a Looney Tunes cartoon. Powerhouse is the iconic Assembly Line musical theme used in many cartoon shows and commercials.
  • Colorized in 1990
