Good Noose is a 1962 cartoon directed by Robert McKimson. It stars Daffy Duck. It is the first short fully scored by William Lava (the first short he scored music for, The Jet Cage, was partially scored by Milt Franklyn, who died before scoring could be completed on the short). After this short and until the Seven Arts era, he was credited as "Bill Lava".


Daffy Duck stows away on a ship. The captain orders his faithful parrot, Mr. Tristan, to look for any stowaways, and have them roped. Daffy is caught, and is going to be hanged but is able to persuade the captain to let him go by saying that he can use magic to entertain the captain. The captain agrees, but Daffy is not a magician and he knows it. His so-called magic tricks include...

  • pulling a fish out of his cap (the fish is inflatable)
  • a milk bottle trick (Tristan says everyone knows it)
  • a card trick (Tristan places a dynamite stick on the deck)
  • a concoction (he destroys the captain's watch)
  • an escape act (he cannot get out and is freed after 10 days)
  • a disappearing act (Daffy plans to blow up Tristan, instead blowing up the ship, which Tristan considers a good trick)


Because of the scenes of Daffy being strangled on a noose (and threatened to die in such a manner) as well as the sequence of Daffy being locked in a trunk and taking ten days to get out, this cartoon hardly (if ever) airs on network television (out of fear of impressionable viewers imitating the dangerous stunts). However, versions shown on Nickelodeon and the former WB network have aired a heavily-censored version where all scenes of Daffy being on a noose, as well as the part where Daffy is locked in a trunk and spends the next 10 days trying to get out are edited, making this a very incoherent cartoon. In stark contrast, Cartoon Network and its sister channel, Boomerang, have aired this short uncut and uncensored, but not as often as the other shorts.
