Storyline

Daffy Duck has signs hanging from every inch of every available tree announcing that it's rabbit season. But, you guessed it - it's really duck season. Elmer Fudd appears: he's the only hunter alive dumb enough to fall for the gag. He's even dumber than that. When Bugs Bunny strides up to him and asks how the rabbit hunting is going, Elmer admits that he hasn't seen a rabbit yet. This is more than Daffy can stand. He emerges from his hiding place and immediately points to a rabbit: Bugs Bunny. "Shoot him now!" Daffy screams. "You be quiet," says Bugs. "He doesn't have to shoot you now." Daffy insists that he does. After Daffy returns his blasted-off beak to his head, he is doomed to more arguments infected with "pronoun trouble" which all have the same result. Later, Bugs dresses as a sexy woman and flirtingly ask Elmer for a duck dinner. Will Daffy get the last laugh? "Ha, ha, very funny! Ha, ha, ha!" Written by J. Spurlin

Never send a duck to do a rabbit's job.
1 December 2012 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

It's duck season again which can only mean one thing. Yep, Daffy Duck decides to place signs everywhere announcing that it's rabbit season. He wants to avoid being shot by Elmer Fudd and he also doesn't mind getting one over on Bugs Bunny. But when did Daffy Duck ever get one over on Bugs Bunny? This Merrie Melodies cartoon is a classic battle of wits between Bugs and Daffy with the fast-talking rabbit using his usual array of tricks to lead to numerous occasions in which the duck needs to rearrange his frazzled bill after being shot in the face.

The great Chuck Jones - the man, alongside voice artist Mel Blanc, who many would argue IS Looney Tunes (I think that's grammatically correct when discussing the brand name) - directs this one and it's sure to be among the many, many favourites that toon fans hold dear to their hearts.

Trickery with pronouns is the main order of the day but there's also some cross-dressing as Bugs brings out some of those wardrobe items that help him to become a lady rabbit.

There's not much more to say, really. The animation is wonderful, the gags are a great mix of clever and silly and the whole thing is just seven minutes of cartoon brilliance.
