Accompanied by a stereotyped native supply carrier, Porky goes on safari for the rare pygmy ant of Central Africa which is valued at $150,000. The ant (also stereotyped) is discovered. The chase is on, with all kinds of antics as Porky tries to capture the pygmy ant. The ant outwits Porky and his less-than-bright native bearer. Ultimately though, the ant saves them from an attacking lion, thereby earning a handsome trophy.
- On the rare times this short aired on Looney Tunes on Nickelodeon, it was always a severely edited version that deletes all the scenes with Porky's pygmy companion.
- The short's title card is the same as "Elmer's Pet Rabbit" and "Good Night Elmer", but in black-and-white instead of 3-hue Technicolor.
- This cartoon entered the Public Domain in 1969.
- The cartoon is seldom aired on American television today due to African stereotyping.
