No, it says, "Corny-gie Hall presents 'A Corny Concerto.'"
Elmer is "an exceptionally seedy and disreputable version of Deems Taylor," who was the narrator for Fantasia (1940).Quoted from: Michael Barrier's audio commentary for the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume Two (2004) (V) Disc 4.
Elmer Fudd is busy doing his Deems Taylor act. Besides, Porky had been a good hunter/straight man for Daffy Duck.How many other times did Porky hunt Bugs? This was the only time.Are you sure? Porky did hunt an embryonic version of Bugs in Porky's Hare Hunt (1938).
Cartoon logic.Besides, that's not an inaccurate parody of real human behavior. Otherwise, we wouldn't be laughing at it. Also, Bugs knows how to work it. He can make Bette Davis sick with jealousy.See also: the FAQ entry above
The identity of the black duckling in this short has prompted much debate among cartoon fans. Is he Daffy Duck or not? Supporters of the idea note that the character's color design, such as the white collar around the neck, certainly evokes Daffy. Naysayers point out that if the duck was supposed to be Daffy the similarity would have been greater and the character would have spoken. Books about Warner Brothers animation history have never addressed this. The matter has never been confirmed either way.Note that Michael Barrier in his audio commentary for Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Two (2004) (V) Disc 4, calls the character "Daffy" without acknowledging this cartoony controversy.Paraphrased from: IMDb's trivia page
Three. A young Daffy Duck wants to make himself number four.
He's imitating the comedian Hugh Herbert. Usually the Warner Brothers characters who imitate Herbert will also make his signature "Woo, woo!" noise.
You can't blame a bird for needing to eat.
"One thing you'll notice when the credits for this cartoon come up [is that] the story is credited to Frank Tashlin. Now Frank Tashlin was a director at Warner Brothers cartoons for many years. And it may seem curious, and it was in fact, that he had a story credit on somebody else's cartoon. What happened here was that Tashlin had been working at a studio called Screen Gems and had come to a parting of the ways with them. And he came back to the Warner's studio essentially marking time, while [Norm McCabe], who was a director then, was preparing to go into the army at the start of WWII. So Tashlin had some time on his hands, he was available to [Robert Clampett] to use on a story, and Clampett said, Great, let's work together. And Clampett was very happy with what Tashlin had [done] for him."From: Michael Barrier's audio commentary for Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume Two (2004) (V) Disc 4.
