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. Written by

Daffy Duck is one of my favourite cartoon characters, so coming across The Daffy Doc on Youtube by chance I decided that with little else to do that I'd watch it. The story is on the routine and Porky's role is best described as a cameo. But the animation is fine, crisp and clean with good, if later much more refined, character designs. The music is lively and energetic with lovely orchestration. I also liked the humour very much. Some of the signs and dialogue may come across as corny and silly by today's standards, I for one found them most amusing, while the sight gags are a lot of fun with the operation and inflated lung gags absolute classics. Daffy here is terrific with a manic and witty personality that really shines. Porky is pleasant to see but he isn't really given all that much to do. Mel Blanc's voice characterisations are great, even if they'd mature later.
Overall, a very enjoyable cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
