Porky finds a lost toupee that belongs to movie star Eric Jones. As a reward (and to keep them from exposing his secret) he sends Porky and Bugs on a trip to Gopher Gulch.

Porky is to inherit one million dollars from the estate of his uncle Hog Brissels. The King of the bankrupt kingdom of Pigvania comes up with a scheme where he claims that Porky is his son, who was switched with another baby on the King's trip to America years ago. That makes the Crown Prince the rightful recipient of the money. The story goes over and the Prince is given the money. The King takes Porky and Bugs back to Pigvania, where he plans to "eliminate them."
