Toon Sports: Daffy Duck vs. Elmer Fudd----in a boxing match? (To Duck Or Not To Duck, 1943)

Chuck Jones skewers the fight game by pitting Daffy Duck (Mel Blanc) and Elmer Fudd (Arthur Q. Bryan) in a rigged boxing match in 1943's "To Duck or Not to Duck".

See, Elmer is out hunting with his dog, Laramore, and manages to get lucky, grazing Daffy on the tail. Daffy challenges him to "a fair fight", which is anything but.

And this, friends, is where wrestling promoters got the idea of fast counts in some matches. Of course, wrestling would also get the satirical treatment........
