Daffy Duck Makes His Debut

Today in 1937, Daffy Duck made his debut in Porky Pig’s Duck Hunt. Since I loved to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings growing up, I thought it might be a fun addition to the blog. It’s interesting to see how cartoons back in 1937 differ from those today. Notably, they feature subject matter that might now be deemed inappropriate for children. For example, the cartoon puts high emphasis on Porky Pig’s shootings skills (or lack there or) and shows some fish getting drunk and singing “Moonlight Bay.” It made me laugh, and I hope you enjoy it too!
