WHO IS DAFFY DUCK?

Daffy Duck is a popular character from the Looney Toons. Along with the likes of Bugs Bunny he has appeared in more than 120 cartoons since his introduction in the 1937 short "Porky's Duck Hunt." Daffy's appearance and frenetic, unpredictable personality have made him immediately recognizable and a favorite with audiences around the world.


In his first cartoon, "Porky's Duck Hunt," Daffy inverts the role of hunter and prey, thwarting Porky Pig's expectations and frustrating him until he finally waves a sheaf of papers at the duck and shouts, "Th-th-that's not in the script!" The hyperactive duck became an immediate hit and was christened "Daffy" in 1938 in the short titled, "Daffy Duck and Egghead."

Some may wonder where Daffy got the wonderful way of speech, there's a story behind that. It is said the voice is based on producer Leon Schlesinger. Meant as a joke, he (Leon) was asked what he thought of the voice by the Termite Terrace staff, Leon was quoted to say " Jethuth Critht thath's a funny voithe! Where'd ya get that voithe "? He never had a clue that it was his way of speech. Director Tex Avery's Termite Terrace Staff included Bob Clampett, Sid Sutherland, Virgil Ross, and Chuck Jones.

In the early years, Daffy was a hyperactive, aggressive and overbearing duck. In contrast, Porky Pig was mild mannered and shy. They became an established team and made many appearances together. Audiences easily related to this epic struggle between the unpredictable little black duck and this pleasant, chubby pig. Not to say that Porky never stood up for himself, an example of this is in their first cartoon. After Daffy had inverted the role of hunter and pray, frustration set in until Porky pulled out a sheat of paper, waved it in the offenders face and shouts, " Th-th-that's not in the script! "
