Storyline

For no apparent reason, Porky Pig is awarded the grand prize of the "What's the Name of Your Name" game show. Unfortunately, the prize is Daffy Duck, whose tactless and rude visit gets him tossed out Porky's house by the irate pig. Insulted, Daffy decides to get back at Porky by pretending to have dissociative identity disorder, becoming a hideous monster whenever he's treated unpleasantly. When Porky eventually finds out he's been had, he decides to give the duck a taste of his own medicine. Written by Ondre Lombard <olombard@lombard.cyberverse.com>

Rather cute...
6 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very nice Daffy Duck cartoon--full of laughs and fun. The show begins with Porky Pig inexplicably winning a prize. Little did he know that is was the booby prize--Daffy. No sooner did the duck arrive then he began behaving like a pest. Daffy was pushy and rude and drove poor Porky crazy. However, when Porky had enough, Daffy decides to be even worse--pretending to be insane and very dangerous. It was so bad that Porky was serious concerned for his life. However, when Daffy overplays his hand, Porky is bent on revenge! Overall, very funny and a bit cruel--which I appreciate! By the way, when Daffy starts acting like a French lover, he's imitating Charles Boyer--a wonderful actor of the era.
