231. What Makes Daffy Duck – Arthur Davis

4811268_l1

SUMMARY: Daffy Duck battles with Elmer Fudd and a fox, both of whom have targeted him as prey.

WHY IT’S HERE: The cartoons of Arthur Davis are among the most forgotten of the Warner Bros. shorts. Davis was never a critically lauded as his peers and his filmography features few really famous cartoons. Davis has, however, become a cult director and, while his expertise were generally less impressive overall that the great Warner directors, Davis did make a handful of fantastic cartoons and ‘What Makes Daffy Duck’ is among the best. A great three-character chase film which has an unusual but attractive rounded look which often characterized Davis’s films, ‘What Makes Daffy Duck’ is a buried treasure well worth unearthing.
