This short's date of release, was not only 1948's Valentines Day. It was on Saturday, February 14th, 1948, one day after superstition date (to some) and some science-fiction movie titles, "Friday, the 13th!". See more »
How am I ever going to catch that scwewy duck?
Precisely what I was thinking, my little Nimrod.
[Daffy Duck had just successfully lassoed Elmer Fudd, causing Elmer Fudd's face to be visable, because he was so tight in his boot and hard to breathe]

[after Daffy successfully lassoed Elmer Fudd], Elmer Fudd is temporarily trapped into one of his boots. During this very humorous fifteen second time frame scene, only Elmer Fudd's head and face are visible. See more »
It's duck season and, confidentially, Daffy is a duck. His problems are greater than usual when he is hunted by both Elmer Fudd and a fox. More than a match for one duck you would say? Not when the duck is as tricky as Daffy who sets about turning the two hunters against one another.
I love Daffy Duck, but I greatly prefer him when he is crazy, in his early days - not only do I prefer his character but also the cartoons seemed to have more value placed upon them. Here we have such a cartoon. Daffy sums up the material best himself when he says `typical of the little black duck' as he spills oil to slip his captor. The gags are good as Daffy uses his crazy imagination to outsmart his captors - in a way it's like Bugs Bunny but Daffy has the added benefit of being absolutely off his head! This is very funny - I'm biased as I am a fan but I guess even those with a passing liking for the duck will enjoy this.
Elmer and the fox are both pretty good - they have the ability to give as good as they get and give the impression that they are a physical match for Daffy and it's only his mental superiority that saves him. As said, Daffy is always at his best when he is slightly loony and that's just what he does here. He is funny, quick witted and a really fun character.
Overall, this is typical of the little black duck - fast, witty, imaginative and crazily funny! An enjoyable outing for Daffy Duck that will easily please fans and hopefully win new ones.
