Quotes

[first lines]
Daffy Duck: [singing] Oh... Join up with me, so joyous and free / Away to old Sherwood hie / For I'm Robin Hood, and I'm very good / At avoiding the Sheriff's eye / So we'll trip along merrily / Thro' the green woods so gracefully / To trip it, trip it, trip it, trip it / trip it up and down / To trip it, trip it...
[trips down a hill]
Daffy Duck: ...trip it, trip it, trip it - Whoops! - trip it, trip it, trip it...
[falls into a pond]
Daffy Duck: [finishing song] ... so trip it up and down!

A Chuck Jones classic.
5 January 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

This Daffy Duck short is similar in style to Chuck Jones' Road Runner shorts with its unique backgrounds and fast moving gags. I especially like the scene in which Daffy uses his buck and a quarter quarter staff. Also very funny is the character design of the rich traveler Daffy attempts to rob. The unique shape of this character and his horse combined with the way they prance across the screen is a hilarious visual. This is among the best Daffy Duck shorts.
