Goofs

The disguised gold egg would be very easy to distinguish from ordinary eggs simply by its weight; it would not be necessary to break an egg to find out if it was the right one. See more »

A weird cartoon that was part of the television special called Daffy Duck's Easter Show (aka Daffy Duck's Easter Egg-citement). The cartoon starts with Foghorn Leghorn (in his first appearance since 1964) as some sort of boss of a hen house where Miss Prissy works. She's not laying normal eggs so Foghorn gives her a warning to lay a good egg or she'll be shipped to the "old hens home." So then Prissy lays a golden egg and discards it, leading to an abrupt shift in which the cartoon suddenly becomes a Daffy & Sylvester story as the two find the egg and fight over who gets to have it. I don't even know what's going on here. It's a waste of Foghorn and Prissy to have them there just to introduce a short featuring two characters that have nothing to do with one another and don't mesh well.

As with most of the Looney Tunes cartoons produced after the classic era, this one is lacking in pretty much every way. The animation is like something out of a cheap coloring book. The music and sound effects are TV quality and I don't mean that as a compliment. The jokes, if we're kind enough to call them that, are unfunny. The best things I can say about it is that the colors are nice and it features the voice work of the incomparable Mel Blanc. Nancy Wible is credited as the voice of Miss Prissy. She's a far cry from Bea Benaderet, who sadly passed away in 1968. This, like the rest of the Daffy Easter Show, is a cartoon that does little but remind us of how much artistry went into making the classic Looney Tunes theatrical shorts and how far Warner Bros. animation had fallen by 1980.
