Storyline

Doctor Quack is doing an operation, and Daffy is his assistant. Things start out sedately enough, with Daffy asking for quiet in various ways. Then the operation starts, and after handing over instruments at a ever-increasing pace, Daffy loses it and is ejected. He gets his head stuck in an iron lung, and feels the effects for a while. Daffy goes in search of a patient of his own, and Porky happens to walk by in time to fall victim to Daffy's mallet. Daffy hits himself on the head and has a consultation with the second and third image of himself. They agree to operate; Daffy chases Porky, and they both get stuck in the iron lung.

Love Those Corny Signs!
11 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One thing I personally enjoy about these 1930s cartoons are the corny signs that always are posted everywhere. For instance, in the first scene here, we arrive at the "Stitch In Time" hospital, where the sign adds, "As We Sew, So Shall Ye Rip." Yeah, they make you wince with their puns, play-on-words and just plain corniness, but I enjoy them. You'll see this kind of written, dated humor all over in this cartoon, from the Operating Room to Daffy Duck's driver's license plate.

This black-and-white early Looney Tunes cartoon features both Daffy and Porky Pig in the same story. Porky doesn't enter the cartoon until the final two minutes. Daffy, who had booted out of the operating room, goes to find a patient of his own. Poor Porky.

Overall, a decent cartoon full of slapstick, silliness and cornball material: in other words, perfect for early Daffy Duck. I enjoyed this but I like young kids would like this a lot more.
