Storyline

Daffy, the "little black duck", falls from the sky onto Elmer Fudd's farm, and rather than be shot, he begs Elmer to accept him as a personal slave. After torturing Elmer with his type of kindness, slave Daffy puts a whip in Elmer's hands, then instantly dresses like Abraham Lincoln to scold Elmer for "whipping slaves".

pretty funny (although most people probably wouldn't want to use slavery for humor)
2 April 2007 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

No doubt the slavery stuff - specifically Daffy Duck acting like a Stepin Fetchit-style character - might make us cringe at "Wise Quackers" some. But as long as we understand what it's portraying, it's really funny, with filmdom's most famous member of the biological family Anatidae* falling onto Elmer Fudd's farm and begging to be his slave rather than get killed. Of course, this is an excuse for him to turn Elmer's lifestyle upside down. Probably the coolest scene is when Daffy warns Elmer that the food might be poisoned and so the slave should taste it first; although I guessed what Daffy was going to do, I didn't predict that they would play Franz Liszt's "2nd Hungarian Rhapsody" to accompany it! Of course, the Looney Tunes cartoons used that song quite often, so it's no surprise.

Anyway, a pretty funny cartoon, despite the slavery stuff.

*That's the family to which ducks belong.
