If we would just provide homeless shelters, these sorts of things wouldn't happen!
13 December 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Some of Daffy Duck's best roles were the ones in which he irks Porky Pig. One example is Arthur Davis's* "Riff Raffy Daffy". After cop Porky throws the homeless Daffy out of a city park one frigid night, the discouraged duck hunkers down in a department store display case. What follows has to be some of the most hilarious stuff that the Termite Terrace crowd ever portrayed!

Part of what I determined from this cartoon - actually, I already knew it but the cartoon strengthened my beliefs - is that if we would just provide homeless shelters, then these sorts of things wouldn't happen. I know that the Rush Limbaugh types like to claim that the poor and homeless drain our economy, but is there ANY reason to believe anything that the Rush Limbaugh types say?

OK, too much analysis. The point is that whenever Daffy and Porky co-star, we're in for something good, and that's definitely the case here. I predicted the elevator gag, but everything else was a real surprise, especially the trick at the end. Really funny.

*Arthur Davis took over Bob Clampett's animation unit after the latter left Warner Bros. He directed cartoons for about two years until lack of funds forced Warner Bros. to close the unit. Davis then returned to animating.
