The short-tempered Daffy Duck must improvise madly as the backgrounds, his costumes, the soundtrack, even his physical form, shifts and changes at the whim of the animator.
Released in 1953, but completed and copyrighted in 1951. During this late forties-early fifties period, Warner Bros., MGM and Disney/RKO stockpiled many cartoons, releasing them a year or two after completion.
Stand back, musketeers, they shall sample my blade! Touché!
Daffy Duck: Musketeers? Hm? En garde, eh? My blade? Hey, psst. Whoever's in charge here! The scenery! Where's the scenery?
The opening credits are written in essentially the same style as those of "Rabbit Hood" from 1949--red and blue "Old English" letters on parchment--deceptively suggesting "Duck Amuck" is a similar "period" cartoon.
