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!

Crazy Credits

The opening titles appear on arrows shot at a target. As the final title card (Starring Daffy Duck) appears, the camera pulls back to reveal that Daffy has been shooting the arrows at point-blank range. He notices the camera and slinks away, shamefaced. See more »

Daffy Duck has trouble proving his identity...
13 February 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Any cartoon with Mel Blanc doing the voice characterizations and produced by Chuck Jones has got something going for it, but while ROBIN HOOD DAFFY is not the funniest cartoon about the famous outlaw, it does garner a few laughs when Daffy crashes into more trees than George of the Jungle.

The animation though, leaves something to be desired--it's not as pleasing in background layout nor are the characters given the sort of careful craftsmanship that was evident in, for example, the Tom and Jerry cartoons. Perhaps this is due to the newer drawing style of the late '50s which relied on more crudely drawn characters.

At any rate, a funny take on the Robin Hood legend, with Daffy getting the worst of things for a change while Porky Pig remains relatively unscathed by any of the over-the-top slapstick. Enjoyable enough, but not one of the funnier Porky Pig/Daffy Duck outings.
