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.

Non stop hilarity from start to finish
24 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fool Coverage is for me one of the better Robert McKimson-directed Looney Tunes cartoons. Why do I love it so much? Basically it is just non-stop hilarity from start to finish, with a huge amount to like.

The animation is excellent, clean, crisp, colourful and smooth like animation should be pretty much. The backgrounds especially are worth admiring. The music is also playful and energetic, the sight gags are clever, the story is original and the dialogue is typical Looney Tunes irreverence. Porky is good and likable although he doesn't get as much to do, but Daffy more greedy than he ever was is the real star of the show. The pacing is quick, and Mel Blanc is superb as always.

Overall, a hilarious and hugely enjoyable Looney Tunes fare. 10/10 Bethany Cox
