Did MGM ever own this or not?
13 December 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I originally saw Chuck Jones's "Daffy Dilly" as part of the compilation film "Daffy Duck's Quackbusters". Now that I've seen it on its own, I notice what appears to be an inconsistency. At the beginning, the opening credits were removed and the title appeared over the Blue Ribbon re-issue logo. All Warner Bros. cartoons that I've ever seen in which that was the case were color cartoons released before September 1, 1948, owned by MGM for years (some of these cartoons got featured in "Bugs Bunny Superstar"). But since this one appeared alongside post-1948 cartoons, that implies that MGM never owned it. So why is it missing its opening credits?

Whatever the case, it's really funny, as Daffy Duck tries to get into a mansion to entertain an infirm millionaire but the servant won't let Daffy enter...until Daffy takes on the persona of a film noir detective. The end proves that laughter really is the best medicine, and you're sure to laugh while watching this cartoon. That'll never be all, folks.
