Storyline

Daffy can't see any point in migration. Until, that is, the depths of winter when he is starving. He smells beans cooking at the cabin of a fox and weasel (who are sick of beans and would love a steak or a duck). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Throughout Civilization, Wolves have been used to symbolize . . .
17 August 2017 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . the more deplorable aspects of Humanity. Phrases such as "the Wolf is at my door," "the Big Bad Wolf," "a Wolf in Sheep's clothing," and "Wolf Whistle" are just a few of the many negative connotations of the Lupine Kind. DAFFY'S SOUTHERN EXPOSURE finds Daffy Duck confronted with the ultimate Wolf Evil: the imminent prospect of being eaten alive by Nature's #1 Miscreant. To add insult to injury, the Wolf stuffs Daffy full of beans for an indiscriminate glutton's take of Foie Gras. When the meat cleaver comes out after his "Shampbell's Beans" repast, Daffy cleverly lures this fanged carnivore South--through the musical strains of Dixie at the 7:00 minute mark--and then down across South America, toward Mr. W's ultimate exile on Antarctica's Larsen Ice Shelf B. This is Warner Bros.' Extreme Early Warning to We Americans of (The Then) Far Future to get Red Commie KGB Chief Vlad "The Mad Russian" Putin's White House Sock Puppet Don Juan Rump (aka, "The Wolf of Wall Street") down, down below into frigid regions where he will harm us no more, pronto!
