Storyline

During World War Two, Daffy Duck owns a junkyard which collects scrap metal to use in building weapons to continue the Allied fight against the Axis powers. Hitler reads about Daffy's scrap pile and about Daffy's stated intent to win the war with junk and, after throwing a fit and chewing a carpet like a mad dog, orders Daffy's scrap pile destroyed. The Nazi weapon for achieving this task is a goat that begins eating the metal in Daffy's junkyard. Inspired by spirits from America's patriotic past, Daffy soars into the air and becomes a "Super American" to defeat the goat and fight back against the German submarine that dispatched it. He awakens, thinking this was all a dream, and finds the German submarine at the top of his scrap pile, with a chorus of German soldiers who say, "Next time you dream, count us out!"

Trivia

In the subtitles of Hitler's rant, he refers to Daffy as a "Non Aryan Duck". This fits in with filmmaker Greg Ford's account that actor Mel Blanc confided that Daffy is supposed to sound "Jewish" as opposed to Sylvester's "Gentile" voice. See more »

Goofs

In the shot where Daffy notices the Nazi medallion, the goat's horns are completely straight. Otherwise, his horns are curved at the ends. See more »

Daffy protects his scrap pile, with a bit of encouragement
26 October 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon, appropriately and effectively in black and white, is a World War II patriotic short, with Daffy needing to protect his scrap pile (for the war effort) from a very hungry Nazi goat. The pep rally conducted by Daffy's ancestors is a highlight of the short and the ending is marvelous. Well worth the time and effort to find. Most highly recommended.
