Storyline

Cupid (who looks suspiciously like Elmer Fudd) is on the prowl around the farm. With his ever-accurate arrows (which have their tips replaced with suction cups for safety's sake), he spreads love to sometimes unwilling recipients. But when he sets his sights on Daffy, the duck wants no part of it. When Elm...erm...Cupid fires the largest arrow at his disposal at the hapless duck, Daffy falls for the nearest hen...who happens to be the main squeeze of the cock of the walk... Written by Jason A. Cormier

Quotes

Daffy Duck: Say, keep your arrows out of other people's businessesses... buster! You shot me last year, and look what happened. Tied down. No more fun. Now look at me. A has-been. A hen-pecked duck. A canvasback Cassanova. And it's your fault, you bare-backed bandit. So beat it, bub. Take a powder. Scram!

A great cartoon, the beginning is skippable
16 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this Daffy Duck and Elmer cartoon (with Elmer as Cupid in a nappy). It has cheerful animation, good music, interesting themes and entertaining storyline and I love the references to "The Henpecked Duck", a cartoon which had been made 3 years before this and is one of my personal favourites. This cartoon is also one of my favourites, but I would like it much more if it did not have its mainly boring, silly, slapsticky beginning which is only worth watching for people who do not know about Cupid and need to understand what Cupid does (but not why, that is never explained...).

Anyhow, in this cartoon, Elmer, as Cupid, is just about to randomly shoot Daffy Duck when the little black duck spots him and complains about the last time he was shot, how he fell in love with a horrible wife (like in "The Henpecked Duck") and had too many children for him to cope with. However, later, Cupid re-shoots him anyway. Daffy falls in love with a chicken, of all people, who is already in love... Crazy capers commence...

I recommend this cartoon to people who like fun, old Looney Tunes and who like a romantic, maniac and crazy Daffy Duck. Enjoy "Stupid Cupid"! :-)
