A "Rosie the Riveter" type is in need of a baby-sitter for her awful child. The only person available is a clueless Porky Pig. His only instructions are to use a book of child psychology. After fruitless attempts to control the brat, his mother returns to show Porky how to use the book - as a paddle on his little behind. Written by Mike Konczewski

BROTHER BRAT
10 August 2000 | by looneythadSee all my reviews

Porky Pig babysits a violent brat named Butch for a mother who works at "Blockheed". This was shown recently, removing the baby making a reference to Hitler. I was surprised they didn't cut this: Mother: "You want those Nazis and Japs bombed off the Earth, don'tcha?" This is a Frank Tashlin classic.
