BABY BOTTLENECK - Warner Brothers Studios (1946)

The Stork Club was a nightclub in Manhattan, New York City, which during its existence from 1929 to 1965 was one of the most prestigious clubs in the world according to Wikipedia!

The combination of alcohol and the job of delivering all the babies in the world is not that great of a match!  As you can see, the stress levels are running very high!

The great thing about this cartoon is that I don't have to explain anything, it's all written out in black and white!

Welcome to the future! Incompetent help is very easy to come by these days!

 The temporary help can't seem to get anything right!

No shit! As you will see, the mistakes are a bit worse than slight'! (Read the fine print! "No Exchanges Will Be Made!)

A baby skunk delivered to a duck!

A baby gorilla delivered to a kangaroo!

And a baby cat delivered to it's new parent, a mouse!

Yeah, Sure, Porky will get everything straightened up all right!

Especially since he has incredibly competent help like Daffy Duck!

Here's what happens when Daffy Duck gets involved!

Porky tries to get Daffy to sit on and hatch an egg!

It doesn't go well!

For either of them!

Porky and Daffy get all wrapped up together in a diaper and delivered to a Mother in Africa! My place of employment is also almost this efficient!

That's almost all folks!

Is it just a coincidence that the babyeating festival known as Krampusfest is celebrated at The Bottleneck in Lawrence, Kansas?  Maybe not!

One that we have not seen in many years....

You know Doc, it's really hard for me to believe these cartoons were made in the 40's. Watching them as a naive kid in the 60's, I thought they were fairly current. I also thought the same thing about "The Three Stooges" for years!

We did enjoy the Stooges... their last film appearance was a cameo as three firemen in "Its a Mad, Mad, Mad World"....
Lots of great performances (and Many Comedy Stars) in that film....

That's one of the reasons I almost never believe in entertainment that "dates badly," because any kind of earlier entertainment can be SOMEONE'S Three Stooges or Elvis Presley or Marilyn Monroe.

Same thing with music Grant! A song might be absolutely terrible, but if it's a memory from a special time, it'll be someone's favourite song every time, and not even open for discussion.
