| even cartoon characters have "before they were stars" resumes
Obviously, the creative process means that you don't necessarily start out perfectly. As one of Daffy Duck's earliest appearances, "The Daffy Doc" is a prime example. Daffy plays an orderly who, after some mishaps, gets thrown out of an operating room. Determined to find a patient, he enlists Porky Pig (against the latter's will). Since Daffy is quite literally a "quack", the operation involves no anesthetic.

The cartoon seems a little less than what we're used to with the Looney Tunes cartoons, but it's still pretty funny. The best part is Daffy's (and later Daffy's and Porky's) unpleasant experience with the iron lung; it shows how "inflation" is more than an economic term.

I wouldn't be surprised if, when people first watched this cartoon, they forgot that the country was going through a depression.
