Petunia goes to Canada for the summer, and when she fails to write him for a week, Porky decides to go to a masquerade party as a Mounted Policeman. The wind blows Porky's hat into a boxcar, and he and Bugs are trapped inside and carried to Canada, where Porky is mistaken by Petunia's uncle for Dauntless of the Mounties.

Indexer Notes

Art submitted on March 21, 1944. Synopsis by Michael Barrier from "Carl Barks and the Art of the Comic Book" (M. Lilien, 1982).

Barrier quotes an August 21, 1974 letter from Barks, "a few of the Porky or Petunia faces may have been reworked by the staff artists in the editorial room. All of the Bugs heads had to be redrawn, which pleased me very much. I am sure if my Bugs had been acceptable, the office would have added that series to my workload." In some cases lines cutting through the neck indicate where a redrawn head was pasted.
