Quackodile Tears is a 1962 Merrie Melodies cartoon, directed by Art Davis, and starring Daffy Duck.

Plot

Honeybunch Duck is sitting on an egg in her nest and knitting. She tells Daffy it's his turn to sit, but he refuses until she kicks his butt. He moves the egg for a moment to fluff up the nest, but the egg rolls away down the hill and into another nest full of eggs. A mother alligator sees Daffy pick an egg at random and bring it back to his nest. When she cries out, the father alligator chases Daffy and they squabble about the egg for a while until Honeybunch returns.

At one point of the cartoon, Daffy uses a grenade painted white as a trap to the crocodile, and Honeybunch seeing this, mistaking it as Daffy throwing away their egg, strangles Daffy and forces him to sit on that "egg", ignoring Daffy's explaination that it is a grenade, not the real egg.

She makes him sit on the egg until it hatches into a baby alligator. And when Daffy starts cloberring the alligator with a bat, she tells her husband it's just an ugly duckling which will grow into a beautiful swan. Meanwhile Mrs. Alligator tells her husband something similar, since both families had swapped eggs.

Trivia

  • Art Davis returned to Warner Bros. to direct this short, his first time directing since 1949. Davis directed this cartoon using Friz Freleng's unit, rather than his own since his own unit was dissolved in late-1949.
  • This short was included in The Bugs Bunny Mother's Day Special.
  • Unlike other cartoons, Daffy is not drawn with his white collar around his neck.

Censorship

Versions shown on CBS cut the scene in which Daffy substitutes his egg for a firecracker for the alligator to grab, only for the alligator to suspect treachery and put the firecracker back under Daffy.

Quotes

Daffy: But, Honeybunch, sitting on eggs is sissy stuff! Honeybunch: Stop mumbling and sit on that egg! Daffy: I'm not sittin' on no egg! Honeybunch: Sit on that egg or I'll... Daffy: Nope, no sittin'!
[slap] Daffy: Someday she's gonna go too far.

Daffy: Eeney, meeny, miney, mo. Where did that stupid little egg go? Oh, well, what's the difference? An egg is an egg.

Daffy: Some people just can't seem to mind their own business.
[alligator gets Daffy] Daffy: All right, wise guy! Open up or else!
[alligator opens mouth] Daffy: One more move out of you and I'll let 'im have it! What a stupe.

Honeybunch: I should have listened to mother...
