Daffy In Black-And-White
7 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Porky's bill for two nights stay at the Broken Arms Hotel is outrageous. He's even charged separately for the "air, sunshine and goodwill!" When the big fat French guy from the hotel comes to collect, Porky says his pal Daffy is in charge of the money. Unfortunately, Daffy has just thrown away money in a craps game.

One thing leads to another and the Frenchman winds up challenging Daffy on the "field of honor."

Well, you know Daffy doesn't have a lot of honor, and they never get to that duel - just a war to see if they can get out of the hotel without paying while the big hotel manager makes sure the opposite happens. All parties take a beating in this war. In the end, Daffy calls up Bugs Bunny hoping he'll help!

It was odd to see Daffy Duck in black-and-white. In all the Looney Tunes Collection DVDs, I've always seen him in color. This was part of the Volume Three.
