Daffy Duck

20 Dec

Daffy Duck is an animated cartoon character in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes cartoon series. Daffy was the first of the new breed of “screwball” characters that emerged in the late 1930s to compete against Disney  characters, such as Mickey Mouse , who was more popular earlier in the decade. Daffy appeared in 129 shorts in the Golden Age, third among Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons, behind Bugs Bunny’s 166 appearances and Porky Pig’s 152 appearances.

Daffy first appeared on April 17, 1937, in Porky’s Duck Hunt. The cartoon is a standard hunter/prey pairing , but Daffy represented something new to moviegoers: an assertive, combative leading character, completely unrestrainable.

Daffy’s slobbery, exaggerated lisp was developed over time, being barely noticeable in the early cartoons. In Daffy Duck and Egghead, Daffy does not lisp at all, except in the separately drawn set-piece of Daffy singing “The Merry Go Round Broke Down”, in which just a slight lisp can be heard.

In 1950, Mel Blanc recorded Daffy Duck’s Rhapsody, a comic song written by Warren Foster, Billy May and Michael Maltese.

Daffy plays a piano duet with Donald Duck in the 1988 Disney and Amblin Entertainment film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Daffy made a cameo in a 1998 episode of The Drew Carey Show, in a method of live-action/animated film.

Daffy Duck is a megastar in our culture today! Many many people are huge fans and enjoy collecting Daffy Duck toys and memoribilia!
