HIS BITTER HALF

Single Daffy Duck reads in the wanted section of the paper that a big, fat grey female duck wants to get married. Daffy is quickly hitched and is also quickly henpecked. After finishing a day full of chores, he meets their son, an annoying duck named Wentworth. After playing "Indian" (and getting scalped), he is forced to take Wentworth to the fair, and gets beat up by a tough guy thanks to his son. Daffy then is force to help Wentworth shoot off fireworks for the Fourth of July, and is blasted. When he is told to bring Wentworth to the zoo, he refuses, even when the wife says, "Are ya gonna take Wentworth to the zoo, or am I going to hafta' pull every feather off your scrawny carcass?!" Daffy packs his bags and leaves, with a featherless behind.
