|Along Came Daffy|
Along Came Daffy is a 1947 Warner Bros. cartoon in the Looney Tunes (reissued Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodies) series. It was directed by Friz Freleng and written by Michael Maltese and Tedd Pierce. All voices are performed by Mel Blanc.
Two starving men (that look rather similar to Yosemite Sam) in a snowbound cabin start to hallucinate and see each other as food items (in a manner similar to Wackiki Wabbit). Door-to-door cookbook salesman Daffy Duck arrives but they slam the door in his face. Moments later their peanut-sized brains realize he is a duck and they invite him back in and chase him all over the cabin. Eventually Daffy explains that he happens to have a complimentary turkey dinner in his sample case. He opens the case and out springs the meal. He makes a quick exit as the famished men sit down to eat.
Before they can take a bite, a horde of hungry mice dash from their hole and strip the turkey clean. The men hear another knock on the door. Daffy is there again, offering some after-dinner mints. The men grab him and pull him inside. Daffy sticks his head out the door for a moment and says "Well, here we go again!" before being yanked back inside.
- Although original 1946-1955 Looney Tunes ending music cue is preserved on the Blue Ribbon reissue, the Turner dubbed version (both US and EU) replaces the original ending music cue with the 1941-55 Merrie Melodies ending music cue.
- This is one of the only two cartoons where Yosemite Sam does not co-star with Bugs Bunny, the other is Honey's Money, his only solo cartoon.
- This is the first cartoon to pair Yosemite Sam with Daffy Duck. The two would be paired together again in This Is a Life? and A Star is Bored (alongside Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd)
- This is the only cartoon where Yosemite Sam's twin brother is seen. His twin brother has black hair in place of Sam's red hair, and has a similar voice (albeit a little high pitched).
- This cartoon is similar in concept to Wackiki Wabbit where it features two starving men hallucinating each other as food due to scarce food supplies (caused by a snowstorm in Along Came Daffy, cause by a shipwreck in Wackiki Wabbit), and when an animal shows up in front of them (Daffy Duck in Along Came Daffy, Bugs Bunny in Wackiki Wabbit), the starving men attempt to eat them (co-incidentally both Along Came Daffy and Wackiki Wabbit were written by Tedd Pierce).
The WB removes the part after all of the duck decoys are shot with Daffy remaining, where Sam shoots his gun at Daffy, blowing feathers from Daffy's carcass and leaving some of the feathers in the form of a bikini bathing suit once the smoke clears.
