Trivia

Daffy's "splice" film borrows its title card from Gold Is Where You Find It (1938), a movie produced by Warner Bros. that same year. See more »

Goofs

Von Hamburger lays down the reel of his film, which is in a green spool, next to I.M. Stupendous' desk. Daffy replaces it with his own film, in a gray spool. In the next shot, the spool is still green until Von Hamburger picks it up, then it becomes gray. See more »

Quite an unusual Daffy Duck.
5 August 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is one of the first Daffy Duck episodes of all time - and I have to say that his animation and voice were a great deal more different! Personally I'm glad they didn't stay with these qualities of his for long, but I am glad that they stayed with his craziness for a good more ten years or so! :-)

This episode is quite clever in presentation. A movie director called Von Hamburger (who looks strangely like Porky) is directing his film and he needs it finished very quickly to give to his producer so he can see it. After Daffy has annoyed Von Hamburger with gags (both funny and mediocre) he goes off to the film studio to make himself a movie, by cutting clips from old movies and sticking them together with glue. Just as Von Hamburger is giving the producer, I.M Stupendous, his film reel, Daffy replaces it with his film...

I liked this episode for the interestingly old Daffy (this is the second oldest episode I have seen of him), the muxed ip movie he made, the animation and some of the humour. For some reason, after watching quite a few of these old Warner Bros shorts, I'm beginning to like old humour.

I recommend this to people who like the crazy Daffy Duck, the old Daffy Duck and Hollywood. Enjoy "Daffy Duck in Hollywood"! :-)
