Storyline

Singing cowboy Daffy retires to the Painted Desert (still wet). He falls for an Indian maiden with a Brooklyn accent, but her very large boyfriend catches them. Daffy dresses in drag, which fools him for a while until Daffy's wig falls off. The boyfriend chases Daffy into the Petrified Forest (where Daffy freezes and breaks tomahawks). The Indian sends smoke signals from a phone booth and his tribe attacks Daffy, trapping him under his house trailer. They steal his tires, but return them because they don't fit.

The Daffy Duckaroo was an uneven Daffy Duck cartoon by Norman McCabe
30 August 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Warner Bros. cartoon on YouTube as linked from the What About Thad? site. It seems Daffy Duck is a movie cowboy crooner who decides to retire to live in the real west desert. He encounters an American Indian girl duck he immediately falls for. Unfortunately, she has a relationship with a big human Indian named Little Beaver. When he returns, Daffy disguises himself as another female Indian who Little Beaver now falls for due to Daffy's way of dress and his moves...There's some funny scenes of both Daffy with the female duck and Little Beaver with Daffy of them both impersonating Charles Boyer and a few more visual and verbal gags I liked but by the end when a topical gag related to the situation of World War II comes on, it just confused me. So despite some nice visual touches by director Norman McCabe, The Daffy Duckaroo was quite an uneven effort to me.
