Looney TV: Daffy's Southern Exposure (1942)

The first time I'd seen "Daffy's Southern Exposure" was one of those cheaply colorized prints, reissued under the Warner Bros.-Seven Arts logo, back in the 70's.

Daffy Duck (Mel Blanc) doesn't want to head south for the winter. Despite warnings from other ducks, he decides to stay in the north, hoping to catch a winter carnival, as the advertisement features an attractive young woman. However, Daffy's plan backfires, and in desperation, is taken in by a wolf and a weasel, disguised as little old ladies, who intend to feed the malnourished duck some extra beans, then have him for dinner-----as the main course.

Writer Don Christensen is better known for his years as a writer-producer at Filmation later in his career.

The Looney Tunes card is the original one, and has not been seen on television in I don't know when. A refreshing change, don't you think?

Rating: B.
