A very funny episode.
20 June 2011 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

For some reason I really like this particular Daffy Duck and Porky Pig episode. I guess it is because the idea of the episode is an interesting one, the cartoon has a good mixture of slapstick and witty jokes, it has only a few predictable ones and mainly unpredictable ones. Both Porky's and Daffy's characters are very well-developed and the ideas of the plot are well-devised. Daffy Duck is not exactly greedy in this episode, but he is very horrible to Porky. Luckily he is pretty crazy here and my favourite type of Daffy is a crazy Daffy. Porky Pig is very likable here and until Daffy Duck butts in is a very safe respectable driver.

Anyhow, basically here Daffy Duck wants to go south for the winter but cannot be bothered to fly like the other birds. He reckons a good way to travel south is by hitch-hiking, so he begins to attempt hitch-hiking at the start. After a few cars pass him and do not let him ride, he manages to make his way into the car of none other than Porky Pig... Will he manage to travel down south by hitch-hiking...?

I recommend this episode to Daffy Duck fans, or fans of the crazy Daffy Duck, to Porky Pig fans and to those who like Looney Tunes in general. This episode has an interesting plot idea, which is the subject of hitch-hiking, something that I have not watched since in a Looney Tunes episode before or since I first saw this cartoon. Enjoy "Thumb Fun"! :-)
