Daffy makes life difficult for Elmer
10 September 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Elmer's the manager of a hotel and Daffy's the bellboy. A tired (and very large) businessman checks in and makes it very clear to Elmer that he needs his rest and if anyone disturbs him, Elmer will suffer the consequences. So Daffy spends the entirety of the short doing one thing after another that disturbs the poor man. Elmer gets the crap beat out of him repeatedly because of Daffy's actions. Fun Elmer & Daffy cartoon, with Daffy as annoying as possible. Several amusing gags and lines. Great voice work from Arthur Q. Bryan and Mel Blanc. Nice animation with lovely colors. The music is lively and whimsical. How much you'll like this probably depends on how much you like earlier Daffy when he was all about being wacky and zany.
