Storyline

Bugs and Daffy are tunneling their way to a vacation spot (with Bugs doing all the work, naturally), when a wrong turn lands them in a cave in the middle of the desert. Daffy's true nature once again shines through when the cave is discovered to be full of treasure. Daffy's glee quickly turns to terror, however, when Hassan the guard (whose only orders are "chop!") catches him with his hands in the gold. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Daffy Duck's best?
22 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Whether this is the best Daffy Duck cartoon or not, it's obvious to anyone seeing it that certainly is among the best featuring this character. In fact, Daffy is much like he was in the short RABBIT SEASONING--looking only out for himself and treating his friend(?) Bugs like dirt. The main difference in this one is that Bugs is a nicer Bugs--in RABBIT SEASONING he was pretty devious as well.

The film begins with the audience assuming it's a Bugs Bunny film. That's because you see the typical trail of dirt as Bugs tunnels across the screen. However, in a twist, as he emerges, so does Daffy! It seem that they're headed for a vacation together and took a wrong turn--ending up in ancient Baghdad (or the like). Soon, they have to contend with genies, greedy sheiks and Hassan who's only ambition it to chop them to pieces! But, as Bugs is concerned with self-preservation, Daffy's greed has been ignited. It seems that Hassan is guarding a fortune in gold and jewels and NOTHING is going to stop Daffy from his one true love...money!

The cartoon is brilliantly written, very engaging and fun from start to finish. While it was an audience favorite, back in 1958, this was exactly the sort of picture that didn't stand a chance Oscar time and wasn't even nominated. Time has shown that ALI BABA BUNNY and not BIRDS ANONYMOUS (the winner) was the better and more timeless film.
