Even though Chuck Jones always cited Tex Avery as an inspiration, it's really Bob Clampett (whom Jones always ignored) whose style bears the most kinship to Avery's cartoons. This cartoon's a perfect example: the duck is totally invincible and thinks nothing of relentlessly pummeling the two dog-hunters, emitting a nasty ducky laugh all along the way.
Riotously funny gags; a quite satisfying film.

Even though Chuck Jones spared no opportunity to credit Avery as his guiding inspiration, it's really Bob Clampett (whom Jones always ignored) who shares the closest kinship with Avery. THis cartoon's a good case in point. The duck has eternal good luck on his side and feels free to relentlessly pummel the two dog-hunters to his heart's delight, emitting a nasty ducky-laugh all along the way. A raucous laugh-riot.
