After torturing Elmer with his type of kindness, slave Daffy puts a whip in Elmer's hands, then instantly dresses like Abraham Lincoln to scold Elmer for "whipping slaves".

Not my favourite - but I like it!
3 March 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is not my very favourite Daffy Duck episode (partly due to the slightly annoying greediness of Daffy), but I really like it! I find it fun, amusing and enjoyable. Another flaw (that may bother some more than others) are slight references to American black slavery, as in the setting, which is a plantation - yet Daffy, the slave, pulls off the gags in reference to the theme of the episode in a lively and hilarious way.

Daffy, who is migrating, can fly no further and is exhausted. He falls out of the sky and lands in Elmer Fudd's plantation. As he always is, Elmer is prepared to shoot the duck, but he begs his life to be spared and even offers to be his slave instead. Elmer agrees (partly without realising it) and many clever gags and excitingly funny turns to the plot follow..!

Recommended for people who like Daffy Duck episodes that are in between old and a bit more modern and for people who will not mind slavery used for humour.

Enjoy "Wise Quackers"! :-)

P.S I have just read Tavm's sort of recent review for this episode and I TOTALLY agree with his last sentence! :-)
