Porky & Daffy


Comments by: Rating: 10 out of 10 stars Posted: October 07, 2004
This is the third cartoon in the series, which just shows how rapidly Daffy's character excelerated.
But, the main reason for this toon's significance lies in the opening credits. This is a Bob Clampett Daffy cartoon, not Tex Avery. You see, as ingenious and influential a director as Tex was, he was not all that strong on character creation. Indeed, much of his characters start off strong but quickly wear themselves out. (The only exception being Droopy.) Or, they don't really capture the consciousness of the audience too much. Tex Avery's wolf is simply known as Tex Avery's wolf.
Daffy would have gone the way of Screwy Squirrel had it not been for the other directors at Warner Bros. It was the combined input of Clampett, Jones, Freleng, McKimson, Tashlin, and even Art Davis that would give Daffy many many layers as a character. Bob Clampett just happened to be the first director up to bat after Tex.
Really though, the reason why the first four characters at WB, namely Porky, Daffy, Elmer, and Bugs, were so much richer than the other characters at the studio was because pretty much all the major directors worked with those characters. And this cartoon certainly proved that and would further help to lead the studio on a very productive path.

Looms quite large in the filmographies of both duck & pig. An incomparable boyhood snapshot.

Rates a top spot in the filmographies of both duck and pig. Makes my sides ache in almost the same way as any Fleischer cartoon.
