Quotes

[Egghead finally has Daffy when an asylum ambulance appears]
Nut House Duck: Gee, thanks a lot, chum, for catching this goof. You know, we've been after this guy for months. He's absolutely wingdingy, looney-tuney, and Oofty McGoofty. I feel sorry for the poor squirrel, but I'm telling ya, he's one-hundred percent nuts.
Egghead: Yeah?
Nut House Duck: Yeah!
[the Nut House duck honks Egghead's nose, then he and Daffy go hopping and woo-hooing together]

Two early appearances of well-known characters
22 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short features a very early version of Daffy Duck (call it Daffy 1.0) and also Egghead, who would evolve into Elmer Fudd a bit later on. This features one of the zaniest duels of all time! The turtle almost steals the show here! Typical Tex Avery sight gags. A bit more talky than the aerage Avery short, but very good. Well worth seeing. Recommended.
