I loved this one...
6 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It's really hard to dislike this Daffy Duck cartoon, as it's rather original, a bit cruel and very funny.

Daffy is a little girl's beloved pet and Daffy knows it. In fact, because the child loves him so much, Daffy takes advantage of it and is a super-obnoxious member of the family. It's gotten so bad that the child's father is ready to kill Daffy--but Daffy manages to outsmart him again and again. When the father comes up with a great way to get rid of Daffy, naturally our obnoxious hero manages to triumph. I could say a lot more about the plot and the wonderful ending, but it would spoil all the fun. Overall, well animated, funny and memorable--while not the very best Daffy cartoon, it's awfully close.
