The very first cartoon in Warner Bros. popular Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner series of cartoons. This one has the Coyote chasing the Roadrunner using a rather ingenious invention combining a fridge, a meat grinder, ice cubes, and skis.
While reading his favorite comic book, Daffy accidentally knocks himself unconscious and dreams he's Duck Twacy, famous detective, trying to solve the case of the missing piggy banks. Taking a streetcar (conducted by Porky Pig, in a non-speaking cameo role) to the gangsters' hideout, he meets up with such grotesque criminals as Pickle Puss, Eighty-Eight Teeth and Neon Noodle.

When the mailman delivers Daffy's mail, one of the letters is addressed to Rod Scribner who was one of the animators on this short. See more »

A trap door, no doubt. Very ingenious.
[Steps to one side]
Duck Twacy is too smart for a trick like that! I shall ring the bell from here.
[Rings bell with a pointer; ground opens up beneath him and he falls to the basement]
Was that trip really necessary?

Daffy causes his own concussion and goes into a dream state where he becomes a famous detective, Duck Twacy. He is in search of a missing piggy bank. In order to solve the crime he must meet up with several arch criminals with weird names (like in the Dick Tracy strip). Of course, this is Bob Clampett and these are Warner Brothers characters. There is lots of hooting and hollering on the part of our inimitable duck. He is obsessed with comic books and can think of nothing else. Like so many of these characters, Bugs, Yosemite Sam, and others, he always seems to land on his feet in the end. Well, not quite in this one.
