Terrible Daffy short from Bob McKimson. This is one of the last solo Daffy cartoons before he was paired up with Speedy Gonzales for the remainder of the classic era. Basically the whole cartoon is about Daffy dying of thirst in the desert and hallucinating. He digs up a gold nugget for no other reason than to set up the punchline for the ending later. There's a big mouse or something that pops up out of the ground...in the desert...and the mouse wants the gold? Why? I just don't know. This is a really tired effort from all involved. It's the kind of cartoon you know was made just because they had to make something, not because anyone had any enthusiasm for this great idea. The animation is sloppy and poor. The music is annoying and the sound effects are too loud. Daffy doesn't stop talking yet he never says a single funny line. Mel Blanc seems 'off' as well. His Daffy voice seems a little more nasal than it usually does. This is really the pits. It'll give you a headache.
