Storyline

As Daffy continuously watches Bugs television, when "Beat Your Buddy" (Daffy's all-time favorite), in order, the two contestants mentioned are Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny. Daffy immediately left Bugs' home to head to the station, but has numerous accidents. As Bugs gets to the building first, Daffy used a secret-weapon, to him and get to the top floor, from outside and injures both Bugs and Daffy. As soon as they are able, they head to the station a second time and Daffy is the winner. Seeing the big wooden million box, Daffy freely gave it to Bugs, before being informed the big wooden box contained 1,000,000 little paper boxes, that a brand new new one-dollar bill is inside each box, with a value of $1,000,000. Daffy then regretted giving it away, started braying like a donkey, in embarrassment, as it concludes. Written by 63x927is58401

Amusing race with Daffy better than Bugs
28 December 2003 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny are sitting at home watching a game show on tv when their names are pulled out of the hat to take part in the million dollar mate race - a race between two friends to be the first to get to the studio and claim the prize. And so the race begins!

Bugs and Daffy are two of my favourite characters and I do like that they have done a few cartoons together. Daffy is usually cast as cynical and bitter with Bugs, rather than the crazy duck that I actually prefer; but he's great in either role. Here he is the greedy duck and that sparks the race to the studio.

The jokes are OK but they require Bugs to be as greedy as Daffy - something I didn't really buy in this cartoon, but it doesn't matter too much. The gags are based around one-upmanship between Daffy and Bugs and they are quite funny even if the material isn't that great.

The cartoon is amusing and features two of the funniest characters from Warner Brothers. Even if it isn't the best example of what they can do it is still worth seeing and has a good punch line.
