When Daffy Duck's Thanks-for-Giving Special was on the air, it was 1980. Jimmy Carter had just lost the election to Ronald Reagan, John Lennon was less than a month from being assassinated, and I was in college. Hard to believe, but it's true. There was a time before the internet when people actually had to watch television without going to the network's website. Daffy Duck's Thanks-for-Giving Special, (yes, folks, that's its actual name,) was a compilation of old Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny cartoons. In one, Bugs and Daffy were with rival television stations. One was KPUT. I forget the name of Bugs' television station. In another, Bugs and Daffy were on a game show like Let's Make A Deal. The object was to test their friendship. Daffy eventually gives the "million box" and its contents, to his friend, Bugs Bunny. Then he finds out from the host that if he'd kept it, he would have won a million bucks. He turns into a donkey and brays when he's asked how he feels. He also says that KPUT is kaput.
