A really funny cartoon with Daffy in good ol' crazy mood
1 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Back in the fifties, there was a labour shortage and firms were forced to hire whoever they could. It is for this reason that Daffy finds himself working as a bellhop for Elmer Fudd. When a guest arrives requiring peace and quiet to catch up on sleep but Elmer has to deal with the fact that Daffy is insane.

Being a massive Daffy fan, nothing saddens me more than to see his late 60's stuff (with the like of Speedy Gonzales), so to recover from one such cartoon I returned to this cartoon to find Daffy in suitably `crazy duck' mood. The plot here has a running gag where the guest returns to the front desk to punch Elmer; this works pretty well but it is the actions of Daffy that are the funniest bits of the film.

He is a great character, but he is at his best when he is crazy. His noisy actions are imaginative and hilarious throughout and he dominates the short. Both Fudd and the guest are good but they only really act as punctuation between Daffy's hilarity.

Overall this is proof, if proof was needed, that Daffy was never better than when he was crazy and off the wall. This short is a simple cartoon with a funny running gag but it is Daffy's craziness that makes it such fun to watch.
