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.

Insurance companies are always trying to rip people off.
25 April 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Daffy Duck, ever the shyster, tries to sell Porky Pig an insurance policy with a series of specific, virtually improbable conditions. When Porky doesn't buy it, Daffy tries to set up several hazards around Porky's house, but only succeeds in repeatedly injuring himself.

What "Fool Coverage" portrays isn't exactly fictional. Insurance companies have been engaging in questionable practices for years. But it was inexcusable what they did after Hurricane Katrina. After many homes were destroyed, the insurance companies refused to pay to rebuild them, claiming that the inhabitants either had no water damage insurance or had no wind damage insurance. Think what you want about insurance companies, but they are truly some of the creepiest thugs.

But I digress. This is a really funny cartoon. A great display of Daffy's greedy side.
