Storyline

Daffy Duck is a life-insurance-peddler, who arrives uninvited at Porky Pig's door to persuade Porky to purchase an insurance policy, on the pretext that Porky's home is loaded with hazards. When Porky rejects Daffy's claim that accidents in the home are "waiting" to happen, Daffy rigs some accidents. But each time, the calamity strikes only Daffy, who is buried in clutter from a closet and blasted in the explosions of kitchen stove gas and a dynamite stick.

"Now, where did I put that screwdriver? I bet I left it in the oven."
1 October 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Amusing Daffy & Porky short directed by Robert McKimson. Daffy's a pushy door-to-door insurance salesman who fails to sell Porky an insurance policy because Porky says he never has any accidents. So Daffy decides to make Porky have some accidents but his attempts backfire every time. Love the opening credits to this one. The animation here is nice with well-drawn characters and backgrounds. Lovely colors are a plus. Nice music from Carl Stalling. Great voice work from the legendary Mel Blanc. Most of the gags are worth at least a chuckle and a few will give you some solid laughs. The final bit would've been funnier if they hadn't telegraphed it so hard. As far as Daffy & Porky cartoons go, it's not one of their best but far from their worst.
