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!"

Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

User Reviews

you deserve a metal
27 June 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Having seen "Daffy - the Commando" and "Scrap Happy Daffy", I think that it's safe to say that that crazy duck was one of the best characters to fight the Nazis (obviously, there was also Bugs). In this case, he collects scrap metal to contribute to the war effort, but Hitler sends a goat after him. If absolutely nothing else, it's just a total hoot to see what Daffy does to the goat.

The idea of collecting scrap metal also brings up the point that in WWII, the government encouraged people to save resources as much as possible. I don't see any of that nowadays. In the future, they're not going to look kindly upon this.

But anyway, it's a really funny cartoon. Definitely worth seeing. And just be careful what you dream about next time.
