Slate: Daffy Duck gets shot in the face
Interesting observation by Slate who looks at the 18 times Daffy Duck gets shot in the face within the three “Hunting Trilogy” Looney Tunes shorts.
Between 1951 and 1953, legendary animator Chuck Jones directed his “Hunting Trilogy,” three short Looney Tunes that are among the classics of the form. The premise of each short is simple: (1) The dimwitted Elmer Fudd tiptoes his way into the forest, (2) Daffy Duck tries to persuade Elmer that it’s wabbit season, while Bugs Bunny tries to persuade Elmer that it’s really duck season, (3) Daffy is outmaneuvered and takes some lead to the face.
