Crazy Credits

The final gag, after the hunter successfully stole the crying duckling's satchel, almost sheds a tear after reading what the duckling was crying so much about and then turns it around, for the audience to read, with "The End" on a note is followed by "The End" in the closing credits, temporarily replacing "That's All Folks!"

I partly agree with Lee Eisenberg.
6 March 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Sometimes Lee Eisenberg can produce very good reviews. He has commented on this and has pointed out something in his review that I agree on:

Lee Eisenberg: "Ain't That Ducky" seems to me to be a sort of crossroads of three different kinds of Daffy Duck cartoons.

I agree! One road is the older Daffy, one road is the sort of middle Daffy and another road is the much more modern Daffy.

It took me two times of watching this episode to like Daffy in this, but for some reason I found him really likable, mainly because his kind side is stronger than his nasty side. The plot is fun, anyhow, pretty much a typical "daffy duck runs away from hunter" plot. I may not know who Victor Moore is (who plays the hunter) but he is good as the hunter in this! The other new character, well, it depends how you feel once you have watched the whole thing whether you like him or not.

Basically, Daffy is having a lovely, huge bath in a pond. He hears a new, yellow duck resident crying and goes over to see what is troubling him. The little yellow duck is upset over a briefcase, but becomes very angry when Daffy wants to have a look inside. Then the hunter comes along...

Good for people who like the muxed ip Daffy Duck and people who are intrigued by the plot mentioned in the previous paragraph, I recommend "Ain't That Ducky". Enjoy! :-)
