It's hunting season, and all the ducks are wisely staying undercover - apart from this freshly-hatched little duckling, who turns out to be more than a match for two inept would-be hunters... Written by

A battle of wits(?) between a baby duck and two hunters.
This is one of Avery's funniest cartoons. Take one baby duck, add two hunters who aren't exactly the shiniest pebbles in the pond, put the three into the hands of Tex Avery and stand back. The hunters have about as much chance of coming out on top as Ronald McDonald has of becoming president of PETA! Standard Avery gags that work no matter how often you see them, but the way he plays with conventions is probably the best thing here. Watch for the Technicolor gag, it's hilarious. Well worth watching. Most heartily recommended.
