I bet that many people have had an experience or two like this
30 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

When Porky Pig arrives in town for a convention and finds all hotel rooms occupied (hadn't he the sense to reserve a room in advance?), he finally manages to get a room. But - as there always seems to be in too-good-to-be-true situations - there's a catch: he has to share it with Daffy Duck, who spends the whole night making noise and keeping Porky from getting any sleep. Not even in "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" did Steve Martin's character have it this bad! "Daffy Duck Slept Here" is a perfect example of Daffy's early, wackier personality (as opposed to his greedy self under the direction of Chuck Jones). I wasn't sure whether to sympathize with Porky just trying to get some rest, or with Daffy doing his usual stuff. But no matter whom you side with, you're sure to laugh at their antics and then at the final gag. I have to say that these sorts of cartoons are just a pleasure to watch time and again. To be certain, it's a good thing that I first saw this now that I'm old enough to understand the setup; had I watched it when I was six or something thereabout, I wouldn't have understood the part about attending a convention, and thus wouldn't have realized what made it so funny.

All in all, I recommend this one.
