A mild-mannered man is sent by his wife to go out and kill a duck for dinner. He ends up picking Daffy as his victim. The two face off and do battle for the remainder of the cartoon.
- Some TV versions that aired on local affiliate stations in the United States shorten the part where Daffy (as a fortuneteller) hits Mr. Meek on the head with a mallet so he can read the bumps on his head
- Cartoon Network's Arabia channel cuts the entire part where Daffy stripteases to distract Mr. Meek.
