Storyline

Daffy Duck is ordered by his loud-mouthed wife to sit on their egg in a nest. When Daffy adjusts the nest to make it more comfortable, the egg rolls away from him and into a crocodile hatchery, where it is indistinguishable from all the other eggs. When Daffy picks what he think is his egg from the crocodile hatchery, a male crocodile gives chase and does battle with Daffy for the egg. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Daffy experiences Dolores Claiborne's threat
19 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In the waning days of Warner Bros. cartoons, the directors kept putting the cartoon stars through various scenarios. In Arthur Davis's "Quackodile Tears", Daffy's wife orders him to sit on an egg* until it hatches. But when Daffy's egg gets mixed with some alligator eggs and Daffy can't tell which egg is which, he and the father alligator begin an egg-stealing battle. What a life!

What I mean by Dolores Claiborne is that in a scene in the movie**, Dolores threatens to kick someone's butt up so high that he'll look like a hunchback. Such is Daffy's fate in one scene here. But I'm probably the only one who noticed that. It's far from the best cartoon, but certainly fun to watch. Definitely not a "croc" of...well, you know what I mean.

*At one point, Honey Bunch says "Sit on it." Daffy's wife is Fonzie!

**I've only seen the movie, never read the book, so I don't know whether or not the book has the line.
