The Taming of the Screwball is the sixth webisode of the Mysterious Phenomena of the Unexplained series of Webtoons cartoons.


Daffy Duck recalls how he started to believe in Mystery Phenomena after seeing a ghost. The story takes place in a theater playing Shakespeare's greatest plays where Daffy is the organizer of plans with Porky on ruining opening night in order to keep all the money from investors. They get the Tasmanian Devil as the lead.

William Shakespeare wakes up in his grave by the bad performance of Taz. Shakespeare arrives at the theater and casts a spell on Taz to speak to 'welltih'. Taz's performance is transformed and the audience are enjoying it. Daffy undoes the magic spell. Fed up, Shakespeare casts a spell on Daffy that transforms him into a female performer and the audience cheers Daffy's performance.
