Porky shows a newsreel parody. It includes an Elks parade; bad tax advice; a Swiss navy battleship; Lew Lehr presents a dog show; a flooded town; a tank trap; a mine that is swallowed by a jellyfish; several new airplanes; a horse race with a photo finish; and a swimming race around the everglades.
On the redrawn version of this cartoon that aired on Nickelodeon, the sequence with the giant jellyfish eating an underwater mine was edited to remove the part after the explosion, where a row of jelly jars land on the ocean floor along with a sign that reads, "Six Delicious Flavors". The computer-colorized version that aired on the same network (and later, Cartoon Network and Boomerang) reinstated the punchline to that joke.
