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.
Elmer Fudd expects to find "west and wewaxation" during his visit to Jellostone National Park, but he sets up camp in Bugs' backyard, and the rabbit (and a neighboring bear) definitely don't have leisure in mind.
A mangy cat on the verge of starvation finds a tiny canary and a bottle of 'Jumbo-Gro' fertilizer, which gives him an idea that leads to giant cats, dogs, mice and canaries chasing each other round Lilliputian towns and cities...
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.

"Was that trip really necessary?" was a public service advertising slogan during the days of gas rationing in WWII. Even seats on passenger trains were better left to soldiers on furlough. See more »

Daffy Duck may be des-s-s-s-s-spicable, but his cartoons are great
Anyone who says that cartoons are only for kids must have never seen "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery". One day, while reading a Dick Tracy comic book, Daffy Duck gets excited and accidentally knocks himself out. He dreams that he's "Duck Twacy". After getting some calls about stolen piggy banks (and finding that his own piggy bank is gone), he sets about looking for the culprits. When he arrives at a house, he not only finds the culprits, but discovers that they're the weirdest group of gangsters imaginable. For example, "Snake Eyes" has dice for eyes, and "Batman" is a baseball bat. Needless to say, it all leads to a big showdown.
Part of what was so great about the old Looney Tunes cartoons was how they poked fun at the popular culture of their eras. There will never be another kind of cartoons like those.
