Cartoon Synopsis:

Daffy "Dumas" Duck has written his own screenplay which parodies The Scarlet Pimpernel and tries to sell it to "J.L.," the studio head. The cartoon concerns itself less with "The Scarlet Pimpernel," Baroness Emmuska Orczy's tale of an heroic figure who smuggles doomed noblemen out of Paris during the French Revolution, than with mocking swashbucklers in general and Errol Flynn in particular (Errol is mentioned no less than three times).

Daffy plays the title character, a dashing highwayman (as Flynn) with an unspecified mission in life, except to irritate the Lord High Chamberlain (Porky as Claude Rains). The Chamberlain, realizing that his daughter Melissa is the Scarlet Pumpernickel's true love, arranges to marry her to the Grand Duke (Sylvester as Basil Rathbone), hoping that this will flush the Pumpernickel out of hiding. Elmer Fudd has a small part as the proprietor of the King's Nostril Inn.
