Storyline

Daffy's flag-waving patriotic fervor is stopped cold when he gets an unexpected visit from the little man from the Draft Board. The duck's frenzied attempts to escape from or eliminate his egg-headed nemesis culminate in a rocket ride which, instead of taking him to the heavens, sends him to the other place.

Daffy the Patriot..!! Oh well now..I wouldn't. say that.
17 March 2011 | by gcarrasSee all my reviews

What can I day about this that hasn't been said by those above. After "Daffy the Commando", to "Scrap Happy Daffy" (or was that after this one?) Daffy as DRAFT DODGER? Even Daffy wouldn't.. but in (unlike much later and to the day) a very funny fashion he constantly and outrageously runs right into that little man kindly serving him ye ole draft notice, and who looks like Elmer Fudd (though his character's borrowed from a radio comic character of the day, Peavy the Druggist on the "Great Gildersleeze", right down to the "Oh well, now, I wouldn't say that!" shtick.), and does the "Tex Avery/Droopy" bit that itself is equally hard to get away from.

But this is a riot, yet if a later Vietnam or today Sept. the 11th counterpart were done with Daffy, dodging the draft..NO WAY would Daffy be this symphatetic (though I disagree that W.C.Fields "took a back seat" to ANYBODY.)

(To the tune of "Marine's Hymm"-aka "From the Halls of Montezuma") "Oh-oh, the lit-tle man from the dra-aft board/ Is comin' to see me"..then realizes what he's just singing about.
