Draftee Porky shows America's Defense Effort, a war newsreel full of military secrets, to rally American public support for the war production of tanks, planes and big guns. It promotes the draft, while slamming anti-draft politics. It mentions British Spitfire aircraft, but also the importance of American design improvements to it. A driver in blackface speaks in a stereotyped manner. The United States mainland is threatened with direct attack. Several 1941 newspaper headlines include one about a strike at the Ford Motor Company's plant in Dearborn, Michigan.
- While this short rarely aired on Cartoon Network and Boomerang due to the wartime themes and ethnic stereotypes, it did air uncut in The Bob Clampett Show Season 2, Episode 22. On the rare times it aired in other Looney Tunes installment shows like Bugs and Daffy, The Acme Hour, or Late Night Black and White, the scene of Rochester driving Jack Benny on a military jeep was cut.
- This short fell into the public domain in 1969 when Warner Bros. failed to renew the copyright in time.
