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 »

This and Daffy Commandos are the best WW2 Daffy Cartoons.
10 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the many WW2 looney tunes that don't air on TV.

This is a black and white short of Daffy Duck telling every one to recycle anything that's alumna, metal, tin, for the war.

His job is to be sure the USA gets all that Scrap Metal to win the war.

But when it comes to Nazis and Metal Eating Goats that can be a problem.

It's up to Daffy Duck to save all that Scrap Metal.

If you like Daffy Commandos, you'll like this one as well.

It's a real fine treat from the WW2 era.

Even has Hitler acting crazy.
