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!"

Sometimes it's better not to know
18 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

We meet a couple of ducks. One is a woeful yellow duckling weeping all over a mysterious suitcase, the other one is Daffy. Then a Fudd family member (or at least a card carrying member of the same hunting club) steps into the picture. You know the type: beady eyes, big black eyebrows not matching the brown hair above his ears and carrying a rifle that has an enormous kickback. 'Squinty' decides Daffy is just the right size and sets out to make him suffer like succotash.

Daffy's chase capers are usually even more far out than his rival Bugs. This Duck knows and accepts his status as a cartoon character and will always try to put this knowledge to good use. So he forces a forgetful animator to draw a barrel as per the script and threatens his pursuer that 'J.L. will here of this'. At one time he takes a cardboard cut out of himself (for promotional purposes perhaps?), convincing the hunter he's just run over his prey. Daffy then dresses up as his own son, saying "you broke his little head", etc. Unexpectedly, the foolish follower decides to adopt this 'orphan' on the spot, forgetting he was planning to have duck for dinner a minute earlier.

Unfortunately that other little duck keeps reappearing and turns out to be far more annoying than good old Daffy D. ever was. Imagine the shock to learn this second stringer is more than just a running gag: the lure of the suitcase proves too much for the two chasers. They form an uneasy alliance to find out what exactly that yellow belly is crying about. They won't like the answer inside, it's fantasmagorically awful (or so the Daffster claims).
