Porky is a talent agent for Smeller Productions who is kept from reaching his scheduled flight by Daffy Duck, the hyper manager of Sleepy LaGoon, whom Daffy promotes as "the greatest discovery since 'The Sweater Girl'" but who looks somnambulant at best. Daffy then proceeds to do Sleepy's entire act, much to Porky's mounting disinterest and horror. (The cartoon's punchline is a riot.)
A prime representative example of the Looney Tunes house style: brash, confident, and with mad gags even in the little corners of the cartoon. (Look at how even a throwaway gag such as Daffy's continually passing a mirror is given more loving care than the main gags of most contemporary cartoons.) The mostly unheralded contributions of composer Carl Stalling are well on display here, too. Simply put, this cartoon is a beaut.
