Storyline

The patriarch of a family of farming hill billies is fattening a turkey to slaughter for Thanksgiving Day dinner, and he is fattening the fowl by providing him with a veritable feast of roast beef, ham, fruits, vegetables, cakes, and pies. A jealous Daffy Duck, one of the turkey's fellow farm animals, wants to have all the food for himself. So, Daffy pretends to care for the turkey's welfare and warns the turkey off the food, and he urges the turkey to lose weight so that the hill billies won't want to slaughter him. Daffy gorges himself on the food while acting as coach to the turkey, who is frantically and strenuously trying to reduce himself. When Thanksgiving comes, the turkey is toothpick-thin, and the hillbilly father turns his hungry sights on an overweight Daffy! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

A little predictable in the story, but still very funny
9 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now I really enjoyed Holiday for Drumsticks, but is it the best Looney Tunes cartoon? No, not for me- I found it a little predictable in the story to find it absolutely exceptional. But it is still very funny, and an example of a cartoon that begins well and is nicely rounded off. The animation is impressive, and the music is pretty good too. The sight gags are plentiful and work really well especially the ones in the latter half, and the dialogue is fitfully amusing. The characters are likable too, Daffy is more greedy if anything else but this works well, but he is almost upstaged by that poor turkey. Oh, and Mel Blanc's vocals are stellar. Overall, very funny if somewhat predictable. Definitely worth watching. 8/10 Bethany Cox
