In the midst of World War II, this cheery, crazy cartoon short was made...
31 January 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

An earlier Daffy Duck episode, this topsy turvy, wild Daffy Duck short will entertain some and annoy others. As bob the moo (on this site) is constantly putting forward, Daffy is always crazier in his early days. This is one of the cases. Many people may be irritated by the fact that Porky is being annoyed by Daffy, but if you look aside, you will see brilliant gags, an entertaining plot and good music featured.

This is my favourite Daffy Duck episode due to the music, Daffy's crazy personality - and that is about it. Very well worth watching!

In this, Daffy is an Actor's Agent representing a small duck (with a huge lollipop) to Porky, a talent scout. Using the most crazy, fun and musical ways imaginable, Daffy shows Porky what the small duck can do. At the same time though - Porky has a plane to catch...

For Daffy Duck fans who prefer the crazier little black duck and for people who like music in cartoons. Enjoy! :-)
