Hitchin' a Ride
25 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Ducks are flying south for the winter but Daffy's too clever for that. So he decides to hitchhike. Poor Porky is the unfortunate soul who gives him a ride. Obnoxious Daffy causes one problem after another, as you might expect. The animation is nice with lovely color throughout. Mel Blanc does all the voices, including one guy who stops just to let Daffy know he never picks up hitchhikers. Mel uses a variation of Foghorn Leghorn's voice for this character. Daffy/Porky shorts aren't my favorites but this one's pretty good. Robert McKimson delivers several solid gags. The trunk bit was used once too often but was still amusing.
