Daffy goes overboard!
25 May 2002 | by Mister-6See all my reviews

When Daffy Duck (Blanc) feels ornery, others suffer the consequences.

And no one suffers more that Conrad (Colvig) in "Conrad the Sailor", who is simply trying to keep a battleship clean by swabbing the deck, polishing the rails and such. But with Daffy around, nothing stays clean (or sane) for long.

Director Jones and writer Monahan make rotten antics good clean fun as Daffy thwarts Conrad at every turn by switching his mop water with paint, planting a mop on Conrad's head, belittling his cleaning abilities ("You're a slovenly housekeeper!"), besting him in patty-cake and outsmarting a freshly-launched bomb, pausing only long enough to snap a salute to the passing Admiral.

That's Daffy and we wouldn't want him any other way.

Of course, I can't speak for Conrad.

Ten stars for "Conrad the Sailor"; high seas hijinx with a felonious fowl!
