* AnvilOnHead: Daffy's parachute is erased by the animator and replaced with an anvil, with predictable results.Happens as a result of ChuteSabotage.



* AuthorCatchphrase: A variation. Daffy's line "Thanks for the sour persimmons, cousin." is an expression stolen from WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes animator/director Creator/RobertMcKimson.
* AuthorPowers: Although Daffy continues to exercise his free will, the animator has godlike powers over the environment, backgrounds, sounds, and even Daffy's body.
* BaitAndSwitchCredits / FakeOutOpening: The opening titles and first few seconds of action (borrowing fonts and music from Jones' earlier Bugs Bunny short ''WesternAnimation/RabbitHood'') suggest a rather conventional, "Daffy as swashbuckling would-be hero" cartoon to follow, like ''WesternAnimation/TheScarletPumpernickel''. Then Daffy lunges stage left, the background disappears into whiteness, and the wheels fall completely off the cartoon.

* BehindTheBlack: Somehow, Daffy fails to notice that the scenery to his left is missing until he actually ''reaches'' the white background.

* BigNo: Daffy pushes away a premature 'The End' card, screaming "''No!! No!!!''"at the top of his lungs.

* CameraScrew: Towards the end, the frame shifts, leaving Daffy's top half on the bottom and bottom half on the top... inadvertently cloning Daffy. He then starts literally TalkingToHimself.
