The Four Blackbirds,

Many of the signs leading the caveman to the duck are parodies of 1930s-era ad slogans: "Cavemen Choose Duckies 2 to 1" is a parody of a Lucky Strike cigarette slogan, "People Choose Luckies 2 to 1." The Caveman is a parody of comedian Jack Benny. See more »
This begins with "Casper Caveman" waking up and walking out his front door (which has a "welcome" mat beneath it! The guy looks like Elmer Fudd but talks like Jack Benny, so it must be parody of him. Anway, Casper is starved and crank so he and his pet dinosaur, "Fido," go looking for food. He spots Daffy swimming peacefully nearby, fires a rock from a slingshot at him.....and the mania is on.
Daffy outsmarts the rock (don't ask), Fido goes goofy after being struck by that rock and assorted other things happened and few of them were funny. I love Daffy Duck cartoons, but these early ones. They are just plain stupid and his little "oh, ooh" laugh is annoying. It sounds like Tigger in Winnie The Pooh. Just because it's Daffy or Looney Tunes, doesn't guarantee it's good to be good. It almost does...but certainly not in this lame effort.
About the only thing impressive about this cartoon is the color and the fine restoration job of it for the LT Golden Collection Vol. Three set.
