|Gold Diggers of '49|
The short's title alludes to the California Gold Rush as well as to the popular Busby Berkeley musicals Gold Diggers of 1933 and Gold Diggers of 1935 (which were also released by Warner Bros.).
Beans and Porky set out to find gold and run into some meanies along the way.
- DVD - Gold Diggers of 1935 (unrestored, added as a bonus)
- DVD - Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 5, Disc 4 (restored)
- DVD - Porky Pig 101, Disc 1 (restored)
- The scenes with the Chinese laundrymen racing along with the other characters in search of gold (and digging for gold in the mine)
- The scene where the Chinese laundrymen are covered in the exhaust from Porky's car and do a blackface impression of Amos 'n Andy.
When the computer-colorized version of this cartoon aired on Nickelodeon, not only were all scenes with Chinese laundrymen cut, but the sequence where Beans shoots at a villain, who shields himself with a metal tub, was also cut. Cartoon Network aired this uncut in both its black-and-white and computer-colorized formats.
- On the title card, when the title dissolves from the credits to Beans' face, the apostrophe in "Gold Diggers of '49" disappears.
- This is the first cartoon directed by Tex Avery for Warner Bros. Cartoons.
- In this short, the star is Beans the Cat, with Porky Pig as the father of Beans' fiancée (Little Kitty).
- This is the first and only cartoon to have Porky stutter in a deeper voice.
