Synopsis[edit]

The majority of this cartoon takes place in the Sahara Desert. The location is very hot as evident by the fan dancers who are using there fans. Porky Pig, who is working for the French Foreign Legion, while leaving a restaurant (Known as the Brown Turban) he gets a message from a spy that Ali-Baba and his Dirty sleeves are going to attack a desert fort. Porky is giving the task of getting there before the bombing begins. He goes to U-Drive Rent-a-Camel and rents Baby Dumpling the camel, voiced by Dicky Jones then races off in order to get to the fort.

He gets there, only to discover that all the Legionnaires have gone to the Legion convention in Boston. He is thus alone with Baby Dumpling when Ali-Baba, known as "the mad dog of the desert," decides to attack the fort. After a familiar scenario of gags(one defeated desert warrior marches about with a sign saying, "This fort unfair to Arabs"), Ali-Baba enters the fort and menaces Baby Dumpling, the camel.

The mother Camel however sees her child is in danger and decides to come to the rescue. Finally, a suicide warrior (who has been sitting on the bench that says "Reserved for Suicide Squad" with the attackers' secret weapon, a bomb tied to his head) attempts to attack the desert fort. Instead, Porky and the camels redirect him to the oasis, where he runs right through the fort and into Ali-Baba, turning Ali-Baba and the Dirty Sleeves into tents that are easily sellable. That's all folks!

Trivia [edit]

In the color version that is available on Public Home Video, the Brown Turban is misspelled as, "Brown Lurbon".
