Telegram deliverer Daffy Duck is in a swamp, with a message for someone named Chloe, when he starts hiccupping. Unable to stop his hiccups, Daffy decides to seek medical help, in a old house belonging to a Dr. Jerkyl, who advertises his services on a neon sign atop his house. Examining the hiccupping Daffy, Jerkyl decides to use a "scare cure" and chemically transforms himself into a goofy lug named Chloe, to whom Daffy had been assigned to deliver the message- a birthday greeting. Chloe chases Daffy around the house, until Daffy uses a syringe to squirt formula into Chloe's mouth, transforming him into a mischievous infant.Written by

A weird episode (not in a very good way) and quite unusual. It does have its good moments.
I will address the advantages and disadvantages of this episode in a very straightforward manner:
Advantages: Daffy is very cute and likable in this episode (for myself), the animation has a pretty good style to it and there are witty old fashioned jokes which will amuse old cartoon buffs (old cartoons, not necessarily old buffs). Disadvantages: The character of Chloe is very intimidating and seems pretty pointless (even though it is the main feature of the episode), Dr. Jekyll is not Dr. Jekyll for a long time, which is sad, because he could have had a better and longer appearance, and the episode has quite a sinister, unfriendly feeling to it, which is unusual for WB cartoons of this era.
I do recommend you to watch this if you are a fan of Daffy Duck, Looney Tunes, older humour and old cartoons in general;however, you might not enjoy it as much as other cartoons that fall into the previous category. It is still worth a watch though. :-) Enjoy "The Impatient Patient"! :-)
7 and a half out of ten.
