One of the funniest combinations of live-action and animation ever produced--and I agree: Leon Sclesinger's voice has to be his own.

This was not Daffy's first display of show biz ego (Daffy Duck in Hollywood {Tex Avery c. 1938}) nor was it the first time the WB mixed animation with live action (Bosko the Talk-Ink Kid {Harman/Ising c. 1929}). But, a first did happen here. No, I'm not talking about Leon Sleschinger, Mike Maltese, or Gerry Chiniquy's first appearances on camera either.
This is the first time we see the extent of Daffy's ego. In the aformention Daffy Duck in Hollywood, he uses his "daffy" powers to overcome a full-of-himself director Mr. Von Hamburger and take his place in the directors chair. In other words, he used those powers for good. In this cartoon, he uses them for evil. We see him convince poor innocent Porky that he has a chance at acting in lave action movies among the stars. However, after he gets Porky to break his toon contract and sends him on his way to the WB sound stages, Daffy runs back into Leon Sleschinger's office and begs him to be the new star of Looney Tunes. Daffy would sell out his own colleagues just to get ahead. Just like later on he'd try to get Bugs in front of Elmer's gun to avoid being shot or let Brandan Fraser remain a monkey just so he can get to the bank on time to deposit the diamond.
Needless to say that Porky comes back, finds out what Daffy did, and beats him senseless. However, another aspect of Daffy that is somewhat introduced here is his 'never-give-up' philosophy, because right after Porky starts back to work as a toon a bandaged Daffy tries to trick Porky yet again.
With this cartoon, many of Daffy's best and most memorable traits were in place. All that was left was to take over the world.

Friz Freleng does an amazing job with this special live-action/animated combination picture. Opens with a typical day at Termite Terrace..workiers lsowly coming in...until..LUNCH!!- everybody ZOOMS out! Daffy is his normal greedy self,trying to upstage [and get rid of...] the current top star at Schlesingers, Porky [little did Daffy know that THE big star of all time was JUST being born-Bugs Bunny!]. Besides all the usual inside jokes, also gives a sense of just how far off the main Warner lot the Schesinger studio was. Supposedly Ael Blanc dubbed ALL the voices, including Mike Maltese as the Guard..but Sch-sch-sch-...LEONS voice sounds authentic,whereas the other voices do sound like being from Mr Blanc's considerable repertois...[By the way,Leon Schesinger looks like he is having a BALL here!
