Trivia

Porky Pig's inn attraction of live dancing, is from approximately a five seconds clip of Gone with the Wind (1939), that lured Daffy Duck to try to imitate. All went okay, until the skipping needle occurs. See more »

Not great but amusing
7 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fed up sweeping floors for Porky Pig in his hotel, Daffy quits and goes across the street to open a rival inn in order to shut down Porky's place. However no matter what he tries Daffy just can't manage to steal the business away from Porky - leading to more drastic actions.

I'm a really big fan of Daffy Duck and always feel that he is at his best when he is in his early persona of being manic and wacky. Even when he becomes more cynical and greedy he still manages to be one of my favourite Warner Brothers characters. Here he is back in partnership with Porky Pig, a combination that usually sees Porky managing to avoid whatever it is that Daffy is trying to do to him - in this case force his hotel out of business. Daffy is the butt of many of the jokes here while porky just stands by and watches Daffy hurt himself! It isn't hilarious but it has a few good moments that are amusing.

The animation isn't great but it isn't too basic, the characters are well drawn and the backgrounds and sets look OK (including a bit of live action in there too). Porky doesn't manage to steal the film even though he gets the better of the outcome, but he still does well. Daffy is good but I always find these ones hard to watch (where he gets beat) as I do like him!

Overall this has a few laughs and is quite good but fans of Daffy may want to skip this in favour of a cartoon where he is in control rather than being a greedy jackass. Despite this Daffy still leads the action well and I found it quite amusing.
