Storyline

Daffy's flag-waving patriotic fervor is stopped cold when he gets an unexpected visit from the little man from the Draft Board. The duck's frenzied attempts to escape from or eliminate his egg-headed nemesis culminate in a rocket ride which, instead of taking him to the heavens, sends him to the other place.

Patriotic Peril for Draftdodging Duck
31 March 2002 | by (Burbank, CA) – See all my reviews

Daffy changes his tune from patriotic flag-waver to craven draftdodger when he learns that the little man from the draft board is coming to pay him a visit. Daffy's reaction when he learns of his induction status is the highlight of the cartoon; the implication slowly dawns on him. He spends the rest of the cartoon trying to avoid the little man, even resorting to attempted murder. (And to think, only a few years before Daffy fought the Nazis in such cartoons as Daffy the Commando [1943] and Plane Daffy [1944].) Only Daffy could get away with such brazenly unpatriotic behavior during World War II, and only a director like Bob Clampett could pull it off and still keep the duck an appealing character. This also marks the beginning of the craven, self-preserving Daffy that Chuck Jones would later develop in such cartoons as Duck, Rabbit, Duck and Rabbit Fire. Another very funny and energetic Clampett cartoon.
