Storyline

Cupid (who looks suspiciously like Elmer Fudd) is on the prowl around the farm. With his ever-accurate arrows (which have their tips replaced with suction cups for safety's sake), he spreads love to sometimes unwilling recipients. But when he sets his sights on Daffy, the duck wants no part of it. When Elm...erm...Cupid fires the largest arrow at his disposal at the hapless duck, Daffy falls for the nearest hen...who happens to be the main squeeze of the cock of the walk... Written by Jason A. Cormier

Quotes

Daffy Duck: Say, keep your arrows out of other people's businessesses... buster! You shot me last year, and look what happened. Tied down. No more fun. Now look at me. A has-been. A hen-pecked duck. A canvasback Cassanova. And it's your fault, you bare-backed bandit. So beat it, bub. Take a powder. Scram!

quite hilarious, but you gotta admit that Elmer looks weird in a diaper
18 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

We often see images of Cupid shooting people with arrows and making them fall in love, but what if the people didn't want his arrows? That's the premise of Frank Tashlin's "The Stupid Cupid". In this case, Cupid (played by Elmer Fudd) shoots people with arrows with suction cups...and the subsequent love is more like the sort of relationships that one would expect to see in the 1970s.

Anyway, when the little guy prepares to shoot Daffy Duck, Daffy resists and explains how their encounter the previous year led to Daffy's unhappy marriage and excess children (needless to say, Daffy says this at near breakneck speed). Finally, Cupid manages to shoot Daffy, and...well, let's just say that what follows is the sort of stuff that I couldn't have even predicted in a classic Warner Bros. cartoon! I just gotta wonder how much fun they must have had creating this stuff.

So, while this may not have been the greatest cartoon that they made, it's certainly a hilarious one. Preceding the main plot line, there's even one of the "now I've seen everything" gags (if you're unfamiliar with these, then you'll understand it once you see the cartoon). Really funny.
