Storyline

Slug McSlug, a notorious bank robber, is chased by police after his latest heist. He reaches his country hideout, where he is promptly visited by an uninvited Daffy Duck, who is a door-to-door vendor of a variety of items. McSlug slams his door in Daffy's face, but Daffy persists in his effort to sell something to McSlug and raises the ire of the wanted criminal. McSlug opens fire on Daffy, who conveniently is wearing a sample of his company's bullet-proof vests. When Daffy turns on the gas of McSlug's stove to demonstrate the igniting power of his sample lighter, McSlug literally throws Daffy out and tries the lighter himself, which blows the hideout and McSlug sky-high.

One excellent Daffy Duck cartoon
1 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Looney Tunes, and Daffy Duck with his manic, witty and likable persona is one of my favourite Looney Tunes characters. The Stupor Salesman is not among his best, but it is a most excellent cartoon regardless. The animation is colourful and clean and the music is as lively as ever. And the cartoon is further advantaged by crisp pacing, a good story, witty writing and very funny(if slightly standard and slapsticky) sight gags especially the eyes-in-the-dark one. Daffy is as manic and as likable as ever, and Mel Blanc's vocal characterisations are once again spot on. The final gag didn't quite work for me feeling a little predictable, other than that The Stupor Salesman is great. 9/10 Bethany Cox
