Storyline

Daffy Duck is a Wild West outlaw named "The Masked Avenger", righter of wrongs and doer of heroic deeds. Porky Pig is his sidekick. Together, they search for Nasty Canasta, a villain whose crimes include gag-stealing and square dancing in a round house. When they find Canasta's hideout and Daffy challenges Canasta to a duel, Canasta flexes his hulky muscles that entirely rip away his shirt, and proceeds to pound Daffy into a stupor.

greed to the nth degree
25 October 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Sort of a re-imagining of Chuck Jones's earlier "Drip-Along Daffy", "My Little Duckaroo" casts Daffy and Porky as a western hero and sidekick out to battle evildoers. Daffy of course can't take on their quarry.

While the cartoon mostly has a repeating gag - Daffy challenges Nasty Canasta but nothing comes of it - I noticed something. Early in the cartoon, after identifying himself, Daffy basically explains that he's totally in it for the money. Certainly under Jones's watch this lisping member of the genus Anas had become very greedy - often bragging about his avaricious side - while Porky would bring some sanity to the situation. And now Daffy giddily talks about how he hopes to collect the reward.

That's the main point that I notice in the cartoon. I figure that "MLD" was mostly intended as a placeholder. Worth seeing.
