Synopsis
Porky, Bugs, and Cicero are fishing in the Atlantic when an underwater mountain rises beside them. Their boat gets beached by the rising mountain, but when they fashion lines to lower it to ocean level, the mountain decides to submerge again. They are saved when their boat lands on top of a whale. In the process, an artifact from the mountain is washed onto their boat. When two curious seafaring strangers show up, Porky and Bugs do their best to hide their discovery.
