Synopsis: Cop Porky takes his bloodhound after a suspected saboteur.

Comments: Named after the 1939 movie, Confessions of a Nazi Spy. Architecture more abstract than traditional; designy trees too. Opens on an establishing shot with text gags; ahhh, hello old friend. Did Clampett start this? So many text gags. Looking for a saboteur (who has a Hitler mask), so another war cartoon. Hallelujah IMA Bomb is a reference to "Hallelujah, I'm A Bum". Porky's cop hat is a throwback. Suicide ending. Second noose of the year.
