"Drop that gun, son!"
27 December 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Funny Daffy and Porky short, directed by Friz Freleng. The plot's simple: Porky's duck hunting and sets his sights on Daffy. As you can imagine, Daffy finds one way after another to outsmart Porky. The gags and lines are all pretty good. This is still in the early Daffy era when he was especially wacky. Not everybody likes this version of Daffy. I admit I prefer the way he was later on a bit more but I do find a lot of these earlier shorts fun. Mel Blanc's voice work is flawless, as usual. Carl Stalling's music is full of pep. The animation is very nice and colorful. There's really very little to say about this that is negative, except that it's fairly routine, even with Daffy being so eccentric. The eagle/pig bit and the ending with Daffy's family are the highlights. It's a good cartoon, particularly if you like the zanier Daffy.
