Controversial Looney Tunes short about the post-Civil War South where a black duck...okay no, not really. This is a hilarious Robert McKimson-directed short that pits Daffy against a mad scientist inspired by Peter Lorre. Daffy doesn't want to fly south for the winter, so he convinces a gullible dog to let him into a warm house. The house and the dog belong to the aforementioned mad scientist, who just so happens to be needing a duck's wishbone for his next experiment. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and Stan Freberg. The animation is lovely with nice colors throughout and well-detailed characters and backgrounds. The Lorre parody and the laboratory are especially nice. It's one of my favorite Daffy cartoons from when he was still wacky and a bit crazy and not the greedy opportunist that he would evolve into in the 1950s. Love that ending!
