"A little traveling music, please."

Enjoyable Daffy & Porky short, directed by Robert McKimson. It takes place in a hotel with Daffy as the hotel owner/manager and Porky as a guest. Daffy charges only a dime to stay at his hotel. That bargain is, of course, too good to be true as crooked Daffy gets his money by sending various pests to harass his guests and then charge a fee to get rid of them. I've seen at least 2 other Daffy & Porky cartoons that took place in hotels where Porky wanted to sleep and Daffy was annoying him. Looney Tunes often reused and reworked ideas so that's really nothing surprising. This one's pretty funny, even if it's basically just one repeating gag. The animation is crisp and colorful. Nice music from Milt Franklyn. Typically excellent voice work from Mel Blanc. If you're a fan of Daffy and Porky, you'll no doubt like this one. It's not a classic but it is fun.
