Cartoon Production Information:

Daffy does impressions of Carmen Miranda.

Songs include: "I'm Just Wild About Harry"/"Banjo Solo"/"Boom-Chicky-Boom," Performed by Daffy Duck.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.


Cartoon storywriter Michael Maltese once said that Looney Tunes director Friz Freleng eschewed the cutesy Disney cartooning style with the admonition, "B*******! Let's knock 'em dead!" This unheralded dandy, "starring" Daffy Duck and Porky Pig, is the clearest demonstration of that motto.

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.

This is a good example of Daffy Duck's weirdness. He is a talent agent trying to get Porky to hire Sleepy Lagoon. During the cartoon, Sleepy kept on holding up signs with pictures that made fun of Daffy. In this cartoon, Porky Pig didn't really do...  (read more)

A wonderful cartoon, but the ending is rather strange. Why would Sleepy Lagoon go into a coughing fit? Its so anticlimatic!
