Each show began with a newly-animated title sequence featuring a theme song by Barbara Cameron, in which Porky welcomes his friends into a barn to dance and watch his show. Following the three cartoons featured on the program (the first one always featuring Porky), a closing sequence played in which Porky's friends say goodbye and promise to return the following week. These opening and closing were produced in New York by Hal Seeger. Warner Bros. had shut down their own cartoon studio the previous year.
