YMMV: Duck Amuck

  • Faux Symbolism: Daffy is effectively having a Book of Job moment with "God."
  • It Was His Sled: Is there anyone left who doesn't know that the animator turns out to be Bugs?
    • Unfortunately, audiences in 1953 probably knew it was Bugs right from the start, as the lobby card (cartoon shorts' equivalent to movie posters) flat out gives away the ending!
  • Genius Bonus: The poem Daffy 'recites' after falling with the anvil is the first stanza of Longfellow's "The Village Blacksmith".
    Daffy: Under the spreading chestnut tree, the village smithy stands / (The anvil gets erased and replaced with a large artillery shell) The smith, a mighty man is he with large and sinewy (Shell blows up) hAaAnDs...
    • Fridge Brilliance: It fits because he is pounding on an anvil (that, in the previous gag, was a parachute that he deployed after jumping out of a plane; it goes about five seconds before it's replaced with the anvil and sends Daffy rocketing towards the ground.)
  • One-Scene Wonder: Technically he's in the whole cartoon, but we only see Bugs Bunny in the last five seconds.
  • Troll: That's essentially what's happening to Daffy throughout the cartoon. Imagine how much fun the animators had with this.
