A Pest in the House is another hilarious Daffy Duck cartoon
30 November 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

With this cartoon the second consecutive Daffy Duck one I've seen in which he's in his prime, I've now completely recovered from the mediocre one he made with Speedy in the '60s I watched before them. He's a bellhop who unwittingly (or maybe not) disturbs a man who just wants quiet while he sleeps but keeps hitting Elmer the manager as a result of the duck's shenanigans! And this guy's room number is 666! LOL! Hilarious from beginning to end, this Chuck Jones entry just kept me guffawing in due time. I especially loved hearing Mel Blanc's singing as both Daffy and a drunk in the next room when they're both warbling! A Pest in the House is well worth the time for anyone who loves classic Looney Tunes. P.S. How surreal was it to hear Arthur Q. Bryan as both Elmer and that man who threatens to "bust you right in the nose!"?
