Surprisingly good for a Daffy Duck episode where Daffy is annoyingly cruel.
9 July 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

In this Daffy Duck episode, Daffy Duck, a house designer, annoys Elmer Fudd by renovating his house with tens of modern gadgets. The reason this is annoying Elmer is because each of the gadgets hurts Elmer, physically and mentally. The reason this episode is worth watching is because of all the gadgets. When this episode was made, in 1954, all the gadgets would have hardly been conceived of and some of them would be almost impossible to invent. Nowadays, however, we could make all the gadgets featured. It is interesting how the makers of this episode conceived of all these modern gadgets, fifty years ago. This episode is also quite funny some of the time, which also makes it bearable. Apart from humour and the modern gadgets, there is nothing else particularly worth noting in this episode (except possibly the animation, it would soon become a lot less special in the 60's for Looney Tunes).

I recommend this to people who like old episodes with modern references, episodes where Daffy is being cruel to Elmer and episodes with quite surprising endings. Enjoy "Design for Leaving"! :-)
