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>

Doodle on me, will ya?
15 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In some ways, "Daffy Doodles" seems a little more sedate than most of his cartoons, but it pulls off plenty of laughs. In this case, Daffy is a criminal painting moustaches on everyone and everything, while cop Porky tries to find him...if in fact that's possible.

I actually wish that they could have let Daffy go a little crazier here, but his antics make up for any problems. I would hate to have to be Porky and be the recipient of Daffy's gags.

As it is, the end scene reminds me of those instances where some criminal tries to get off scot free by copping an insanity plea or something like that. But anyway, it's a great cartoon.
