Chuck Jones directed it just in time
29 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the things that I notice about Chuck Jones's "Conrad the Sailor" is that it got released about two months after the United States entered WWII. I suspect that Chuck filmed it (at least most of it) before we entered, so he didn't realize his perfect timing! But that's just speculation. The cartoon itself is a riot, as Daffy Duck teases Conrad, a deck-cleaner looking like a cross between a cat and a dog (although I think that he's supposed to be a cat) and having a face like the humans chasing Bugs Bunny in "Wackiki Wabbit" and "Hare Conditioned". Daffy makes a complete mess of everything that Conrad does. It's a true representation of Daffy back when his name really described his personality: acting totally silly for no discernible reason. Beyond that, it shows something else: during Chuck Jones's first few years as director, his cartoons were more like Disney cartoons (if you've seen any Sniffles cartoons, you'll know what I mean); but once Chuck's work took a turn for the outright zany, he went all out! Anyway, a timeless classic.

PS: Pinto Colvig, who provided Conrad's voice, also voiced Goofy in the Disney cartoons.
