Storyline

Daffy Duck is a life-insurance-peddler, who arrives uninvited at Porky Pig's door to persuade Porky to purchase an insurance policy, on the pretext that Porky's home is loaded with hazards. When Porky rejects Daffy's claim that accidents in the home are "waiting" to happen, Daffy rigs some accidents. But each time, the calamity strikes only Daffy, who is buried in clutter from a closet and blasted in the explosions of kitchen stove gas and a dynamite stick.

One of the better episodes.
25 September 2011 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Well, "Fool Coverage" does contain a great deal of predictable slapstick, but it still remains one of my preferred Looney Tunes cartoons. This is partly because it has a clever plot idea: a Life Insurance salesman and customer story. It allows Daffy Duck to continuously try to damage Porky Pig or his property, driving the plot and for Porky Pig to be a strong character resisting Daffy's wishes (mostly, anyway). There are a few humorous verbal jokes, particularly towards the end and the cartoon has good pace, music and pretty good animation.

Basically, in this cartoon, Daffy, who works in Life Insurance, is trying to sell Porky Pig a good deal. Porky Pig has no interest in Daffy's sales (even when Daffy Duck offers Porky a million dollars for a black eye) and so politely sends him out. Daffy Duck, clearly desperate, is determined to have some money and has a few plans up his sleeve to make sure he procures a customer...

I recommend this episode to all who like Daffy Duck in general, he is in his more greedy state here, but not so much that he is purely despicable, as in some other episodes. I recommend this also to people who like Porky in general, who is in his normal state of affairs here. Lastly, I recommend this to people who love Looney Tunes overall and like having a good laugh.

Enjoy "Fool Coverage"! :-)
