Storyline

In a large eastern American city, a fiend is loose, painting mustaches onto the faces shown on billboards and posters. This fiend is a wacky Daffy Duck whose compulsion to paint mustaches has no bounds. He is chased by police officer Porky Pig on the city walkways, in a subway station, and atop a building with a large billboard. Daffy manages to paint a mustache on anyone he encounters. He takes special delight in doing so to Porky, as many times as he can. Porky finally catches Daffy, and the mischievous mallard is brought to court, where he is acquitted by a jury of mustached Jerry Colonnas! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The perfect duck
21 December 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I am a very odd Looney Tunes fan. I love Looney Tunes for the reasons that most people do not like it. I like it mainly for the animation, non-slapstick jokes and the historical value. I am also a huge fan of Daffy Duck, but only in certain cartoons (I do not like Daffy Duck very much at all when he is being greedy and cruel, even though it is funny). In this cartoon, it was almost as if the Daffy, in both personality and animation style, was created for me. He was brilliant, I loved the little black duck in this cartoon. Even though there are many Daffy Duck cartoons I prefer to this one (do not ask me why, I have no idea), but this is the cartoon where I feel the personality of Daffy has been conjured toward his best and most entertaining. :-)

Anyhow, I also enjoyed this cartoon for Porky (who does not bring on much humour but has an admirable personality), the setting (New York City), the animation and the theme of the episode - painting moustaches on every face! Classic!

In this Daffy Duck episode, we are greeted with some sort of news headline, about a criminal in an "Eastern City" (lol), who is painting moustaches on every face. We meet Daffy Duck, who is the criminal and explains to the audience that everyone has a purpose in life - and his is to paint moustaches. Odd? It becomes better...

I recommend this to people who like the crazier Daffy Duck who is still easy to relate to, Porky Pig and Looney Tunes in general. The good thing about this cartoon for certain people is that there are quite a deal of farce and slapstick jokes. I did not particularly enjoy these myself, finding them laboriously repetitive, but other people will like them. Enjoy "Daffy Doodles"! :-)
