they realize that it's more than plain...if your paranoia is real
17 April 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

While most of the WWII-era cartoons from Warner Bros. had the characters kicking Nazi butt head on - or at least contributing to the war effort back home - "Plane Daffy" takes a different approach. After several pigeons get seduced by female Nazi spy Hatta Mari and divulge national secrets, the army hires none other than the looniest of all ducks to deliver the secret. But when Daffy meets the woman, it's up to him.

Obviously, when there's the risk that someone's trying to attack you, you wonder whom you can trust, or who might be a spy. Needless to say, they make it as funny as possible here. The truth is, I might have gotten tempted to spill the beans to a babe like that woman! But anyway, it's a really funny cartoon.

Yeah, that's not a secret at all.
