| A Daffy Duck episode which is surprisingly good!
"Dime to Retire" is one of quite a few Daffy Duck episodes where Daffy is being very cruel. Luckily in this, he is being cruel for money, he is being cruel in clever ways and he never actually hurts anybody himself (in other episodes, often Daffy is punching Porky and trying to kill Speedy Gonzales or something like that). There are also some quite clever gags in here, which is also rather unusual for this kind of episode. It is unlikely that you will not smile at least once while watching this. Luckily the theme of the episode is also good, the storyline would be much weaker without it.

Porky has been driving for quite some time and needs a place to stay for the night. Unfortunately, in the town he stops at, all of the hotels have no vacancy - except one. Porky is very surprised to find a hotel where he has to pay only ten cents per day. He is happy with his room provided by Daffy Duck (as the hotel manager), until a mouse starts chewing celery nearby. The trouble has only just started...

As bobthemoo also points out, there is a reference to the older, crazier Daffy Duck at the end of this, as he runs around shouting, "Woo-hoo!"

I recommend this to people who like the cruel Daffy Duck best and to people who like the modern Porky. Enjoy "Dime to Retire"! :-)

6 and a half out of ten.
