"I will name him George and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him..."
25 December 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Bugs and Daffy are headed to Palm Springs but take a wrong turn and wind up in the Himalayas. Before they can leave they run into the Abominable Snowman. He's a hulking white creature with a blue nose who delivers bonecrushing hugs. Despite how dangerous he is, I found him terribly cute. In typical Looney Tunes fashion, the Snowman is modeled after Lenny from "Of Mice and Men." Daffy's reactions when this big brute manhandles him are hilarious. It's a simple but very funny short from Chuck Jones and Maurice Noble. This was the last original theatrical Daffy Duck short Jones did. The animation is nice and the script is a hoot.
