Storyline

Daffy is working as a baby-sitter for the Acme Baby Sitting Agency; while he's sitting on a chicken egg, it hatches. The chick decides Daffy is a stranger and he should have nothing to do with Daffy, but Daffy has to catch the chick. Of course, there are complications, including repeated run-ins with Spike the dog, another chicken whose nest the chick hides in, and a high wire that Daffy can't conquer.

the revenge of the baby-sat
14 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

This time, Daffy Duck is a baby-sitter sent to sit on an egg, which happens to hatch. When the chick takes Daffy for a stranger and runs away, Daffy tries to catch him but this proves to be the most elusive chick on earth. Then again, he has the advantage of a bulldog, a high wire, and numerous explosives lying around.

"The Up-Standing Sitter" is one of the many additions to the pantheon of classic Looney Tunes cartoons. It was back in the days when everything was just a gag every second. It was just neat that they weren't afraid to do whatever they wanted.

So, maybe this wasn't the greatest of their cartoons ever, but it's still pretty funny. Sort of a precursor to "Calvin and Hobbes", with what Calvin always did to Rosalyn.
