Porky is reading the story of the gorgon, a Greek myth about a woman who turned everyone she looked at into stone. His mother tells him it's time to go to bed. While he's asleep, he dreams of being a Greek hero known as Porkykarkus. In this version, the Gorgon runs a photo studio, and Porky is able to save by sneaking in and grabbing her life-restoring needle just before he wakes up.
- Bill Comstock - The Gorgon is a parody of his character Lizzie Tish on Al Pearce's radio show.
- Al Pearce's salesman character Elmer Blurt is a statue used as a doorstop
- The Three Stooges make a cameo. When turned to stone, they resemble the famous "three wise monkeys" sculpture.
- Dick Powell - as the Dick A. Powello statue
On Cartoon Network, the scene of the Gorgon's guard telling Porky that he's next to be turned to stone followed by Porky picturing himself as a piggy bank, is cut (barring its appearance in The Bob Clampett Show), most likely because the Gorgon's guard looks as if he's in blackface.
