It's hard to believe that's Daffy Duck, but we have to believe it.
20 June 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"Daffy Duck and Egghead" features that crazy quacker in his very early days, tormenting a soft-spoken hunter (it seems like his nose was more oval-shaped than his head was). Maybe Egghead was a precursor to Elmer Fudd, but I do prefer the latter (I think that at this time, Elmer was always portrayed as being rather obese). Still, this is a really funny cartoon, with everything that you can expect in such a cartoon. You gotta wonder why the hunters would keep going after Daffy, the way he always made fools of them.

I think that Bugs Bunny had not yet been created when this cartoon was released. No matter, within about fifteen years, he and Daffy would of course be rivals in trying to escape Elmer's bullets.
