Daffy's Inn Trouble (1961)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
In this cartoon, Daffy Duck sweeps the floor of Porky's inn, which is in the middle of a desert. He is fed up with having to work for him rather than running an independent business just like Porky. When Porky buys him a new broom (which was kind of him but is a bit of an inappropriate present), Daffy quits and goes off to build and run his own inn. Porky, who is very good at his business (even though it is small), can immediately see Daffy does not know how to run an inn...
I recommend this cartoon to people who like a cleverer Daffy along with Porky and a mix of slapstick and non-slapstick jokes in a Looney Tunes cartoon. Enjoy "Daffy's Inn Trouble"! :-)
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.
Truly some good times.
PS: Does anyone know which movie the live-action scene is from?
