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.

Funny!!!
9 February 2004 | by (Morro Bay, Hammett Valley, Twin Rocks) – See all my reviews

FOOL COVERAGE is one of the best and funniest Daffy Duck/Porky pairings of the golden age of cartoons. Daffy plays a shyster of an insurance salesman who tries to swindle Porky Pig into buying a plan with VERY specific guidelines. He can only collect his bongo buckage when he gets a black eye as the direct result of a stampede of elephants trampling his house between 3:55 and 4 PM on July 4th, during a hailstorm. Hilarity from start to finish.
