Quotes

Daffy Duck: Obviously, I am dealing with inferior mentalities!
[Daffy Duck said this, after taking a forest ranger mask off, that he was wearing, and after nailing a "FOX SEASON" sign on to the tree, he was setting in, before the brawl started, as Elmer Fudd and the unnamed fox started to fight each other. Daffy Duck still is disguised as a forest ranger, blows a whistle. Then, Elmer Fudd started chasing the unnamed fox, as the closing credits musical theme begins]

One of my favourite Daffy Duck cartoons - typical of the little black duck!
21 August 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Genre: Cartoon, old animation, hunting, funny.

Actors: Mel Blanc (Daffy Duck and fox), Arthur Q. Bryan (Elmer Fudd).

Main characters: Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and the fox.

What happens: For Daffy Duck in one of his older episodes, life's pretty tough at the moment for him because it's DUCK SEASON. He has to perform all these tricks, just to take a shower. Unfortunately, it doesn't work, as two unruly hunters, a fox and a human (Elmer Fudd), find him there…

Message: It is polite not to hunt ducks.

My thoughts: "What Makes Daffy Duck" being in my top ten favourites, this particular episode is very likable (I even liked it slightly more than some episodes when I didn't like Daffy Duck in general!). I like the old animation of Daffy Duck, he's all wonky unlike in his later cartoons with Charles M. Jones etc (I think Arthur Davis saw Daffy better with a wonkier style, even in the '60's). Also, not ONCE is Daffy shot but survives, unlike in a lot of later episodes. He is also more wily, cheeky and less stubborn than in his later episodes, which I like A LOT. Also, it is quite a funny episode, but not the most funny ever. What more do I have to say? I like Daffy, I like the animation and I like the humour! :-)

Recommended to: People who prefer the older Daffy Duck to the newer one, people who like watching old cartoons and people who prefer Elmer Fudd not butting in so much, if you know what I mean and I recommend this to people who like funny cartoons! Enjoy! :-)

8 and a half out of 10.
