God bless the Looney Tunes and the memories...
30 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes in your brain you have images or moments from your childhood that you simply never forget, decades later when you've forgotten almost everything you learned in high school math or certain parts of history or even in science, and yet what was shown on a television to a child in a cartoon from the 40's is everlasting. I had forgotten the title of this short but knew that it involved a courtroom drama involving Daffy Duck and a chicken, with Porky Pig as the judge (because why the hell not?) presiding over a lost egg over a magic trick, and specifically the hen wanting a divorce.

And how do I know this? Because a repeated retort, in full close-up from the hen, is her yelling "I want a divorce! I WANT A DIVORCE!" Maybe I remember it because it was the first time I could register the word 'divorce' and it meaning the end of a marriage, or simply because of the ferocity with how she said it. The rest of the cartoon was entertaining I'm sure, and it involves the usual creative madness that Bob Clampett has in his compositions and animation, which is among the finest in the 1940's. But the point of it all is that sometimes something very personal, like hearing a term described to you in a cartoon, sticks out and has power.
