Looney TV: Daffy the Commando (1943)

I remember seeing this next Daffy Duck cartoon on cable back in the day, but good luck trying to find it today.

"Daffy The Commando", directed by Friz Freleng, was released in 1943. Daffy is sent behind enemy lines, and, of course, chaos ensues.

"Daffy the Commando" and other WWII-themed shorts have long since been banned from appearing on television, although it may have aired on Toon Heads. It's not just Daffy and his friends, but stars from other studios also have had their WWII adventures taken off the air, partly due to racial stereotypes used in these films.

Rating: A.

This and other WWII themed cartoons are contained in the Looney Tunes Golden Collection volume 6.

So much for being banned. At least the fans can get the DVD's and scope 'em out for themselves.
