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.

Ducksters, The (1950)

*** (out of 4)

Spoof of game shows has host Daffy Duck mistreating contestant Porky Pig by throwing boulders, safes and various other gadgets on him. Even though poor Porky is answering the questions correctly, Daffy keeps doing harm to him but soon things are going to change. There's not too much thought, screenplay wise, in this short from Merrie Melodies but it still manages to be quite charming and cute. The one thing that held it back a little for me was Daffy who just really didn't seem like himself here. We never really get that maniac attack nor any nice lines of dialogue. Porky on the other hand is his great self and the two do work well together.
