I feel like I could've been sure about this fifteen years ago, but is "Flanderized" really the right word for the change in Daffy Duck's depiction? Or Sniffles?

No, in my opinion. Flanderization is when a character becomes an exaggerated version of himself, but Daffy's personality is replaced by a totally different one. The right trope is Characterization Marches On. I never tried to correct this because this wiki talks about Daffy's "flanderization" (referring to the Chuck Jones era and his change of personality in the 50s) pretty much everywhere and there are too many pages to correct
