Storyline

Porky tries out his new hunting gear and blasts a hole in his apartment roof (and neighbor's backside). At the swamp, neither he nor the other hunters can hit anything. Porky sets out decoys, then can't tell the real duck from them; he wades out there, but his shotgun gets waterlogged. He shoots a barrel of rum, and some fish get drunk, get in a rowboat, and sing "Moonlight Bay". Porky thinks he's shot Daffy and sends his dog out to retrieve him, but Daffy brings the dog back. After some more shenanigans, Porky breaks out his duck call, which gets him (and his dog, after he swallows it) shot at. They go home, dejected, where the ducks taunt him some more and his gun jams again. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Tex Avery's importance to Warner Brothers (and animation) is evident
10 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon was the start for Daffy Duck. So Tex Avery played a significant part in the development of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and developed the character (Egghead) who grew into Elmer Fudd. This is a good short to watch to see how Avery and Clampett worked together. Not a seminal cartoon, save for Daffy, but well worth watching. Tex Avery was a very successful man, who by all accounts, was never really sure he ever managed to do much of lasting importance. Most assuredly, he did quite a bit. Recommended.
