Trivia

The word Tom Turk mutters while inside the snowman is "Quisling." This was the name of the Norwegian Prime Minister who sold out to the Nazis, paving the way toward a (relatively) bloodless invasion of his country. In return, he was granted preferential custody of his occupied nation, but his name would be synonymous with "traitor" and "Benedict Arnold" forever after. See more »

Entertaining enough.
1 December 2009 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I quite enjoyed this episode for what it was, but it is certainly not one of my major favourites. The theme of hunting is one that I am becoming a little bored by (I know that is just me, some other Looney Tunes fans will digress) and there were a few jokes repeated throughout the episode. However, I quite like the way Daffy Duck was as kind as possible in this episode to the new character (even though he then converted to his darker side, but even when he did he was very upset) and I also enjoyed watching the new character.

In this episode, Daffy Duck is making a snowman at Thanksgiving time, when along comes a turkey being pursued by a hunter. He begs Daffy Duck to hide him, giving reasons why he wishes to live more of his life. Daffy takes a while hiding him and does his best to thwart Porky's plans to shoot the turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. But will Daffy Duck hold on forever to his kindness when Porky lists the things he would have cooked the turkey with..? The way the episode turns out did not totally surprise me, nor may it surprise any Looney Tunes buff who has watched Daffy Duck episodes. I still recommend it for at least one watch, to people who like all Daffy Duck and to people who prefer to see Porky Pig in a higher character role than usual. Enjoy "Tom Turk and Daffy"! :-)
