Storyline

Daffy Duck as a radio quiz-show host, and Porky Pig as his contestant. Daffy penalizes Porky very roughly if he doesn't answer a question properly or within the (ridiculously short) designated time. He: drops safes, boulders and waterfalls on Porky; forces Porky to name all 48 states in a very brief moment of time; locks Porky in with a ravenous gorilla and threatens him.

The Ducksters is probably Chuck Jones' most outrageous cartoon
5 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is perhaps one of the most violent of the Warner Bros. cartoons, certainly of Chuck Jones who initially made sweet Disney-like shorts. Porky Pig is a contestant on a radio quiz show hosted by Daffy Duck who keeps torturing the pig with boulders, a mallet, waters from "Niagra Falls", and a circular saw whenever Porky gets an answer wrong or takes too long (like, maybe, 2 seconds) before replying. Whenever he does get an answer right, the duck just stares into space. After Porky does eventually get the money, the tables get turned. The constant calamities are pretty hilarious and just as things get too much for the pig, he gets wise. Not recommended for children especially for what threatens Daffy at the end.
