Storyline

The second section, "Blue Danube", spoofs the tale of the Ugly Duckling, with a baby black duck not unlike a juvenile Daffy saving the day when the swans are threatened by a goofy buzzard. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Trivia

For some reason, the identity of the black duckling in this short has prompted much debate among cartoon fans as to whether or not it is in fact Daffy Duck. Supporters of the idea claim it is Daffy due to the character's similar color design (such as the white band around the neck), while naysayers say that if it was supposed to be Daffy then it would have been made a little more clear in his appearance or by having him speak. It should be noted that the books about Warner Bros. animation history have never addressed this, nor has it ever been confirmed either way. In the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD commentary given by Michael Barrier, he claims that it is Daffy, but since he was not a member of the crew who worked on the cartoon nor citing a source as basis for his conclusion, such a declaration should not be taken as absolute fact.

Not Much Humor But Nice Visuals, Music
16 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cartoonists just love puns; have you noticed? Here, we begin this corny parody of "Fantasia" at "Corny-Gie Hall."

Elmer Fudd is the conductor and tells us what to expect in the concert, using as many "w's" instead of "r's" the writers could think of for a 10-second speech. We then witness the Strauss waltz, "Tales From The Vienna Woods" featuring hunter Porky Pig, his dog and their prey, Bugs Bunny. All the action is done to the music.

The same holds true for the second number, "The Blue Danube." This second part was totally lame except for the great artwork.

The colors in here at stunning, and might be the highlight of the whole cartoon. The laughs were not plentiful, but you can't win them all.This cartoon is part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Two and can be seen on disc three.
