* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: An interestingly justified version. Egghead must have been a [[TropeCodifier top graduate of the academy]]. To sum it up, his aim is so awful that he can't hit the apple on Daffy's head, ''even when Daffy is standing in front of the gun, with the apple directly in front of the barrels''. (Amusingly, he ''can'' hit the [[VisualPun broad side of a barn]].) Upon this EpicFail, Daffy promptly fits Egghead with dark glasses, a cup filled with pencils, and a sign that reads, "Blind."

The one short that practically kicked off the ScrewySquirrel-type cartoon, [[Creator/TexAvery "Fred" Avery's]] '''''Daffy Duck and Egghead''''', a [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] short from [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation January 1, 1938]], while not the first [[WesternAnimation/PorkysDuckHunt in which Daffy Duck appears]], '''is''' the first one in which Daffy is named, the first one in which Elmer Fudd (or rather, a prototypical version of him named Egghead) goes hunting, and the prime example of early WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck at his daffiest. Full of great gags, a song from Daffy and perfect pacing, it's a classic short to behold.
