Trivia

At one point, Porky's gun stops shooting and Daffy asks if he's out of ammunition. When Porky confirms this, Daffy waves his arms and shouts "Praise the Lord!" This is a reference to the 1942 Frank Loesser song "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition." See more »

Classic Daffy Duck short - superb.
29 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

One of my favourite Daffy Duck episodes, this is very good. Both Daffy and Porky (who is the hunter here) make a good team and as Daffy did in the old days (the good old days) he fools his companion by use of clever tricks. Instead of insults and hurting in the later future, Daffy proves that he has talent and does not deserve to be shot (which is what Porky is trying to do). He shows that he can act, that he can sing and dance and a number of other clever tricks.

So, that's basically the plot. I also greatly enjoy this episode for the animation, the plot and the feelings expressed (the ending is also quite good, but surprising). Daffy's best line in this episode is: "I kind of stand out from the crowd, don't I?" as he does what looks like doing his nails (even though of course ducks do not have nails) among normal mallard like ducks bobbing up and down and eating duckweed.

I recommend this to people who like the old Daffy Duck, do not like too much fighting in Daffy Duck episodes and for people who would like to see a pairing of Daffy and Porky where Porky does not win over Daffy, really. Enjoy! :-)
