Tom Turk And Daffy 8 out of 5 stars

The Yams Did It!

Reviewed by: Animation_Celebration, November 24, 2002

This cartoon is another successful co-operative from Porky and Daffy. Also making an appearance is Tom Turk, the turkey. The combination of great animation, varied sound effects, and a hilarious script make this one of the funniest Thanksgiving themed cartoons. One of Daffy's best lines came while trying to hide Turk from Porky. After shoving Turk under a snow covered rock, Daffy rejects the idea with, "Nope, even more obviouser." A great play on words. There's also some terrific gags like Daffy tossing a bucket of water over a stream to form an ice bridge. Overall, the visuals and SFX greatly enhance an already wonderful script.

Tom Turk And Daffy 6 out of 5 stars

One of Chuck Jones' most underrated cartoons. This is loaded with great gags and a couple of sick bits (I get a HUGE kick out of Daffy's body jackknifing when the tree lands on him. It is SICK, but I bust a gut every time I see it)and has one of the deeper bits of historical humor you'll see in a cartoon: When the Turkey, hidden in a snowman that Daffy has made, realizes Daffy is about to sell him out to hunter Porky, he mutters one word, as a question: "Quisling?" Quisling was the Nazi-sponsored puppet-head of Norway during WWII. Quisling was synonymous with "traitor."
