Poor Daffy: Just Not 'Star' Material
3 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If a long-eared rabbit can be a star, so can a duck," pronounces Daffy Duck as he disgustedly leaves some Hollywood dressing room area after overhearing Bugs being interviewed by a columnist. Daffy wants to be a star, too.

Meanwhile some movie producer is looking for a double for Bugs. He's on the phone asking someone, "Where can I get someone stupid enough to take the job?"

You can guess who applies! The title to this cartoon is similar to Daffy's response, "You can hang up the phone, boss, because a star is born and that star is me!"

The results are predictable when Daffy is called upon, in the middle of various scenes to be a stand-in for Bugs - he gets pulverized in various. A couple of the "stunts" were funny, like the jet plane but most were so-so, at best.

The artwork was very 1950s-ish. It's hard to explain but you know the look, more "modern" than from 1940s to the early '50s.
