St. Peter’s is, quite simply, the most impressive building that Catholic piety could imagine and sixteenth-century engineering could create. But it isn’t just a Renaissance masterpiece. The basilica was built on the remains of early Christianity’s greatest church, and with materials taken from dozens of Roman ruins. This hidden history is still visible – if you know where to look.

It’s May 1, 1943 and in the ball turret of his B-17 is gunner, Sergeant Maynard H. Smith. Known to the crew as Snuffy, Smith was not a tall man which was an essential requirement for a ball turret gunner.
Due to faulty equipment the B-17’s find themselves unexpectedly low over occupied France. Set upon by German guns and FW 190s, the B-17 was damaged beyond repair and on fire. 3 of the men bailed out over the English Channel. What happened next was a feat of bravery and endurance that saved the plane and the remaining crew. Tending the sick, defending the plane with the waist guns and putting out the fire at the same time, Smith showed true grit in this incredible episode of WW2. This earned him the medal of honor, but despite this, the unruly and unpopular Smith found himself demoted.

Porky's Garden is a 1937 Warner Bros. Looney Tunes animated cartoon directed by Tex Avery. The short was released on September 11, 1937, and stars Porky Pig. This cartoon's theme is a Looney Tunes theme from 1937, known as Porky Signature theme, but not "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down", which would be first used as the opening theme in "Rover's Rival". However, a few bars of "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" are played when the Podunk fair is introduced. This predates the use of "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" as the Looney Tunes theme, and is one of the earliest uses (if not the first) of this song in the Warner Brother's cartoons, the last cartoon that Elmer Wait animated; he died about two months prior to the release. The film entered the Public Domain in 1965.

Notes
This is the final cartoon to use Porky Signature theme on opening and closing titles.
Notice the box of seeds Porky had. When he puts it down it seems oddly placed over-lapping the watering can.
The chick eating spinach and then changing is a thinly-veiled Popeye reference.
It is the last Looney Tune to end with the regular "That's All, Folks!" end card sequence until 1946.
This is the MeTV previously unreleased restored print of this cartoon on Toon In with Me.

Cat-Tastrophy is a 1949 Color Rhapsodies short directed by Sid Marcus.

The story of when a WW2 de Havilland Mosquito flew home on half a wing, one engine and a single gear leg!
The hugely versatile and high-performance DH98 Mosquito was unquestionably the greatest contribution by the de Havilland Aircraft Company to the success of the RAF in the Second World War.
The iconic design made use of a wooden 'sandwich' construction, drawing upon the experience gained from the high-speed DH88 Comet Racer, and the streamlined DH91 Albatross airliner. Such was its popularity amongst pilots that it soon became affectionately known as ‘The Wooden Wonder’. Originally conceived as a high-flying, unarmed photo-reconnaissance aircraft, the Mosquito saw service in wide-ranging roles from bomber / fighter-bomber, night-fighter, anti-shipping strike, trainer, torpedo bomber and even as a simple target tug.

This is one of few cartoons where Daffy gets the better of Speedy, and one of few where they are evenly matched. This is also the first time this has happened, the other two being in "Mucho Locos" and "Feather Finger".
The DVD Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1960s Volume 2 uses an image of Daffy from this cartoon, despite neither this cartoon nor any starring Daffy being included.
MeTV aired a previously unreleased restored print of this short on Toon In with Me.

Boston Quackie is a 1957 Warner Bros. Looney Tunes short directed by Robert McKimson. The short was released on June 22, 1957, and stars Daffy Duck and Porky Pig. The cartoon and its title are a parody of the character Boston Blackie. The engine on the train is a 4-4-2 engine or a French Paris type steam locomotive No. 12 and 1434. These locomotives of this wheel arrangement were used most on France railroads. The shot where the train goes by shows the engine hauling four passenger cars, and when the train goes by the mail post, the engine only has three passenger cars.
The films is a spy comedy, featuring a secret agent who has to recover a stolen attaché case.

Stooge for a Mouse is a 1950 Merrie Melodies short directed by Friz Freleng.

Some of the gags that were used here were later recycled in "Bugsy and Mugsy".
This cartoon and "Rabbit Every Monday" were written by Friz Freleng while he was in-between writers.

For most Romans, nightlife consisted of drinking and gambling in the local tavern. But for members of the elite, it could be an epic progress from mansion to mansion and party to party, sometimes with a few dive bars between.

The Villa of the Papyri was the single most impressive building buried by Vesuvius. Its lavish halls and courtyards contained a stunning collection of artistic masterpieces.

And these may be only the tip of the iceberg...

Biography of Caracalla (188 – 8 April 217), who was Roman emperor from 198 to 217. He was a member of the Severan dynasty, the elder son of Emperor Septimius Severus and Empress Julia Domna. Proclaimed co-ruler by his father in 198, he continued to reign with his brother Geta, co-emperor from 209, after their father's death in 211. His brother was murdered by the Praetorian Guard later that year, supposedly under orders from Caracalla himself, who then reigned afterwards as sole ruler of the Roman Empire.
