Daffy Duck - Daffy's Southern Exposure (1942) Redrawn Colorized

Daffy's Southern Exposure is a 1942 animated short directed by Norman McCabe and starring Daffy Duck. It was released by Warner Bros. as part of the Looney Tunes series.

Plot

Various ducks are seen flying in the sky, including a few flying with the banner "KEEP 'EM FLYING! BUY A BOND!" Meanwhile, Daffy is seen sitting in a lake, pointing out how silly it is for the rest of the ducks to fly south and north repeatedly. He comments how he isn't going south, because he wants to "check up on this whole winter business." The other ducks say "You'll be sorry!" However, Daffy doesn't care and splashes around in the lake. He flies up in the sky, and then flies down, only for the lake to suddenly be icy and crashes on it. He notices snow and skates around.

Later, Daffy is revealed to be trapped in a snowstorm, and is now searching for food. He imagines a snowy tree as a T-bone steak and starts licking it. However, he realizes the steak is actually a tree and starts banging on it, and then peels pieces of bark off. With the pieces of bark and one of his hands, he creates a "hand sandwich", and yelps in pain after biting down.

Just then, the aroma of food welcomes him to a log cabin. Inside, there are a weasel and a fox eating beans. The fox is complaining about how he has to eat beans everyday, and would rather eat steak, baked ham, or roast duck. He then notices the sound of Daffy knocking on the door. The fox opens the top half of the door, and the weasel tries to pull Daffy in, but is slapped by the fox. He then lifts up Daffy, then puts him down and whispers something to the weasel. They then leave, and the fox returns, disguised as a woman.

He then invites Daffy inside, and he starts fattening up Daffy with beans while the weasel, also disguised as a woman (with the name of "Abigail") measures him. After Daffy is put in a frying pan, the fox says "And now for our desert!" and he and the weasel take off their hats, revealing their selves. Daffy gets shocked, and then jumps out of the frying pan. Daffy tries to convince them into not eating him by saying that he is a pigeon and a hummingbird.

Daffy runs to the door out, opens it, and closes it, as does the fox. The weasel closes the door, and then runs into the wall. The fox chases Daffy into a tree. Out of a hole near the top, Daffy imitates an elevator operator, and then he and the fox go upwards and out of the tree. The fox swings his ax around and around, making the tree a totem pole. He cannot find Daffy, who is on the pole mimicking a totem. He gets on the ground and kicks the fox in the behind.

The fox then chases Daffy some more, only for Daffy to momentarily stop the chase and punch the fox in the head. The chase then resumes, as Daffy pulls a lever on a log that makes a detour appear. The fox runs onto the detour and falls off the log. Daffy runs past some signs that say "SOUTH", "SOUTH", and "AND WE DO MEAN SOUTH!"

There is then a shot of a Carmen Miranda-like character doing a dance. Her dance ends, and Daffy pops up from the fruit in her head, sporting a similar hairstyle on his head. He comments, "I like the South American way. And I do mean South."
