Storyline

Snow-bound in a cabin, two starving men begin visualizing each other as food, before salesman Daffy Duck calls at their door. The two men fancy Daffy as a duck dinner and chase him around the cabin. Daffy tells them he is a cookbook salesman with a complimentary turkey dinner. The men let Daffy go and sit down to feast on turkey, but a group of famished mice suddenly appear and devour the bird before the men can raise a knife to carve. When Daffy returns to try to sell the men some after-dinner mints, they resume their hungry chase of Daffy. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

"What's cooking, Doc?"
4 August 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Fun Daffy short, directed by Friz Freleng, that pairs Daffy with Yosemite Sam. That's unusual as Sam appeared exclusively with Bugs in all but a couple of shorts. The cartoon starts out with Sam and his dark-haired twin (!) starving in a cabin during a blizzard. Door-to-door salesman Daffy shows up and you can imagine the starving brothers are pleased to see him. The dark-haired "Sam" gets a little more to do here than Yosemite but it's still interesting to see Sam paired with Daffy. Nice music from Carl Stalling. Great voice work from Mel Blanc. Excellent animation. The cabin is especially nice and detailed. A pretty funny effort all around but not one that'll make Freleng's highlight reel.
