No Sleep, No Justice
3 November 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Daffy the bellhop drives a customer batty. He's a big goon who only wants one thing: peace and quiet at the hotel so he can get some sleep. He tells the desk clerk (Elmer Fudd) that if he doesn't get it, he'll punch him in the nose.

"Likable chap, isn't he" asks Daffy to us, the audience. I guess that made it better to endure some guy, since he's pictured as a jerk, getting mentally tortured by our overzealous and crazy bellhop who makes life miserable for the man who wants "peace and quiet" a phrase Daffy uses six times in about 20 seconds. Yeah, this duck could drive anyone crazy! The guy's suite number is 666, too, which is an omen of things to come. Actually, Daffy is trying to help the guy. He's not nasty in here, just ignorant.

Daffy ruins the customer but poor Elmer pays the price. The gags in this one are so-so and our duck friend is so loud and obnoxious he was irritating. Justice was not served in the end, either.
