Storyline

General Daffy, in a Napoleon hat, commands a fort. Porky sleeps too soundly, so Daffy needs to roust him, but when the Indians attack, he's the only one awake to see them. There follows a series of fight gags, including some recycled from Johnny Smith and Poker-Huntas (1938) and _Hardship of Miles Standish, The (1940)_. A cross-eyed Indian keeps shooting his own horse, until the horse takes action. A soldier counts "one little, two little..." with the Indian taking the last line. A short Indian uses a tall bow-legged one to shoot his arrows. Finally, Porky calls for more bullets; Daffy trips while carrying them and swallows them, turning himself into a machine gun. Porky uses Daffy to rout the Indians, who run into a hillside, spelling out "Yanks beat Indians 11-3." Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A remake of Scalp Trouble, but not too bad in its own right
12 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

This cartoon could be considered a "cheater" because it uses quite a bit of footage from Scalp Trouble, presumably because of material shortages during wartime and because the animators were also doing war-related projects and it saved time. Though Scalp Trouble is better, Slightly Daffy is good enough to see for its own sake. Worth watching. Recommended.
