opens on a bookshop, with Porky pig singing cowboy songs in a book on the subject. (Yes,
for no particular reason this is a books-come-to-life adventure.) Daffy Duck comes off the
"Ugly Duckling" to chime in and then goes on about his business. A wolf appears
from "The Wolf Of Wall Street", and chases Daffy for the remainder of the
cartoon. One of the wolf's tricks is a duck decoy...which eventually produces wind-up
Daffy offspring! Porky doesn't think they could "possibly mean anything to each
other." one of the kids jeers: "YOU, and your EDUCATION!" by Matthew
As a redrawn version, much is
lost from this cartoon's quality. Obvious animation shortcuts and errors are everywhere in
this. The computer colrized or black and white are much better.
Pictures by Pietro Shakarian
- Daffy has a light pink ring around his neck.
- In the original version the book says the "Wolf" of Wall Street
however in the redrawn Wolf is changed to "Wole."
- The female decoy's tail doesn't turn into a hand the picture just freezes.
- Daffy stands on the water!
- Alot of frames freeze.
- Porky's body seems to be turning all the way around.
- The duck decoy children are colored brown (one looses it's win-up screw)
- Orange Iris.
Computer colorized version notes:
- The digital color version has many of the color schemes in the redrawn
version (Like Daffy's pink neck and Porky's pink hat.)
- Scene of Daffy riding on a "Black Beauty" is cut on
Cartoon Network for obvious reasons.
- The opening WB sheild and Looney Tunes cards were freeze-framed and
digitally dissolved into the cartoon. Probably to save time for colorizing.
