An exceedingly mild-mannered man is sent out to kill a duck for dinner by his wife. Unfortunately for him, he picks Daffy Duck as his victim. The two face off and do battle for the remainder of the cartoon.

Bugs challenges Cecil Turtle to race, only this time he's wearing an aerodynamic suit like Cecil's. Unfortunately, the gambling ring has bet everything on the rabbit, and Bugs now looks like a tortoise.
Elmer Fudd expects to find "west and wewaxation" during his visit to Jellostone National Park, but he sets up camp in Bugs' backyard, and the rabbit (and a neighboring bear) definitely don't have leisure in mind.
The aptly named Mr. Meek is sent by Sweety Puss to kill Daffy for dinner. Daffy escape the hatchet, and hides behind a haystack, squirting ketchup for blood and making dying noises. Mr. Meek sees through this, and chases Daffy into the house. Inside the house, there's a lot of chasing, Daffy does a striptease, and faced down a shotgun twice.Written by

This Daffy Duck episode stars the crazy (and luckily not very greedy) Daffy and a weedy, pathetic (pathetic at first and then a bit less later) man who is trying to hunt him, because his wife forced him to (luckily she does not appear in any part of the episode). The hunter is searching for a duck and he quickly comes across Daffy eating seeds. Daffy is not to be easily killed however...
I enjoyed this episode because Daffy, who is very unconventional and off-the-wall here (entertainingly so), is so good and because of the animation, the plot-line and the man who tries to hunt Daffy. The humour is also very good, fun and wacky. It is a bit odd for Looney Tunes humour, but will appeal to a great deal of viewers. A good deal of the jokes are old fashioned as well (like the kissing one, which I like for some reason, which ccthemovieman pointed out), stuff that would not be made today, for anyone's viewing, which is another highlight to the cartoon.
I recommend this to people who enjoy old Looney Tunes and to people who like Daffy Duck, especially when he's CRAZY. Enjoy "The Wise Quacking Duck"! :-)
