An interesting episode.
3 March 2008 | by MightyzebraSee all my reviews

When I put: "An interesting episode", I'm talking more about how and when and why the episode was made instead of just what happens in it. It is interesting because it was made just before the Americans entered the Second World War, it has a song that was later partly used in "Duck Amuck" ("Over the sea, let's go men" etc) and the actor for the cat Conrad is the same person who voiced Goofy - Pinto Colvig! It is easy of course to recognise his voice - but I was very surprised when I heard it!

As for the episode, I like it. The farce may be overdone somewhat (for me anyway), but luckily it makes up with good jokes and the theme of the episode. There is good singing, good quotes from Daffy and Conrad, though he is horrible to Daffy, is quite a likable character anyway (guess in the same way we feel about Yosemite Sam and Wile Coyote, eh?).

On a Navy ship, there is a cat sailor called Conrad, who is merrily swabbing the deck (easily with our "modern" mop). He sees strange muddy footprints and then the little black duck and is very angry with Daffy that he has wandered on board with muddy duck feet. Hyper antics follow when Daffy decides that he does not like Conrad...

Mainly for people who prefer the older Daffy Duck and farce, enjoy "Conrad the Sailor"! :-)
