You can always see how in Daffy's early days, he existed for no other purpose except to be as outlandish as possible, doing things that even the Marx Brothers never imagined. "Porky & Daffy" plays this to the fullest extent, as Porky enlists Daffy in a boxing match against an aggressive rooster. At first, the game looks totally one-sided. But when Daffy does things involving the referee, all bets are off...with a vengeance! I just have to try and imagine how much fun they must have had creating these cartoons. Clearly nothing was sacred to those guys. As for the fact that this cartoon got featured in "Rocky"...well, it's the sort of cartoon that could give anyone hope. Really funny.
