This Blog Wishes Daffy Duck A Happy 75th Birthday

Daffy Duck looks pretty damn good for his age. He made his screen debut in Porky's Duck Hunt, released theatrically on April 17, 1937.

Don't worry, I'm not going to go Alistair Cooke on you and start intellectualizing about cartoons, gushing about Daffy being The Unbridled Id or emblematic of America going into WW2 or some other tangent that's off the subject at hand. No. No. No.

We'll just post a few more cartoons.

So, behold, the insane world of Daffy Duck, according to Tex Avery
