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>

Not much of the new Daffy, unfortunately.
31 March 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This was Daffy Duck's first episode and I have to say he pulls off a very good job! He is cute and crazy, including some good gags. Unfortunately though, the episode is mainly taken up by Porky and some random gags (such as fish becoming drunk and paddling in a boat) and some gags from Porky (not on purpose though - except for one). Luckily bigger appearances of the little black duck were to follow... What makes up for the lack of appearances from Daffy are interesting animation and Porky is quite cute as well.

This cartoon begins with Porky going out to hunt ducks. While seeing if there are any bullets in his gun, he accidentally shoots the ceiling - and the person in the flat room above. After Porky has received an angry hit on the head, he goes out hunting. For him and his dog, Porky's hunt is not successful, mainly due to a wacky and cute little black duck...

Recommended for anyone who wants to see Daffy's delightful debut and for people who are interested and enjoy "historical" cartoons. Enjoy "Porky's Duck Hunt"!
