An odd one
15 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Elmer Fudd is a farmer and Daffy is one of his ducks. What a weird start to this cartoon. Anyway, it gets weirder. Daffy is apparently a glutton who eats not only his own food but the food left for the other animals, including Barnyard Dog. When Elmer's wife needs to cook something for dinner, Elmer decides to kill Daffy. Barnyard Dog is only too happy to help. There's something so weird about this one. Aside from the plot and the way the characters are depicted, the colors are washed-out for a 1950s Looney Tunes short. Other than that, the animation is OK. Solid voice work from Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan. Special mention to June Foray as Elmer's wife, who speaks with her own adorable version of Elmer's speech impairment. Some of the gags are funny, including the ending. The weirdness of it makes it slightly more interesting than it would be otherwise. Still, it's not one of Daffy or Elmer's best.
