Storyline

For no apparent reason, Porky Pig is awarded the grand prize of the "What's the Name of Your Name" game show. Unfortunately, the prize is Daffy Duck, whose tactless and rude visit gets him tossed out Porky's house by the irate pig. Insulted, Daffy decides to get back at Porky by pretending to have dissociative identity disorder, becoming a hideous monster whenever he's treated unpleasantly. When Porky eventually finds out he's been had, he decides to give the duck a taste of his own medicine. Written by Ondre Lombard <olombard@lombard.cyberverse.com>

Quotes

Daffy Duck: Hmm. Guess I'll have to use my Jekyll and Hyde routine on this wise guy.
[knocks on door]
Porky Pig: Yes?
Daffy Duck: I'm sorry you did that to me. People shouldn't push me around. It isn't good for me.
Porky Pig: Oh, f-f-fiddlesticks. And why not?
Daffy Duck: Because I'm a split personality, that's why not. I'm two people in one. A schiz... a schiz... a schizophreniac. When people are nice to me, I'm sweet, gentle, and loving.

Daffy Duck: Ello, baby. Nice, fat, little ...

An unexpectedly good episode
23 September 2009 | by MightyzebraSee all my reviews

Before I begin my review, may I ask, what did the Looney Tunes makers have about Jekyll and Hyde? This is one of three episodes I've watched with the above-mentioned theme and it seems to be coming of age now.

Anyhow, I liked this particular episode because of the pace of it, some of the verbal jokes included and I like the animation and personalities of Daffy Duck and Porky Pig here. Robert McKimson's Daffy Duck cartoon seem usually to have Daffy in a unique style - this cartoon is no exception. Some of the cartoon seems a little unorigianl, but overall it is entertaining nonetheless.

In this episode, we see Porky Pig listening to the radio and he hears a programme saying that a lucky person will win a prize straightaway, delivered to their front door. Of course, the winner is Porky, but his prize - well, let us just say the radio programme people did not pick the prize well if they wanted to please the public. Daffy Duck bounces out of the parcel and creates havoc for poor Porky...

This episode deserves to be watched by fans of Looney Tunes in general, people who do not mind Jekyll and Hyde references and for people who like Daffy and Porky. Enjoy "The Prize Pest"! :-)
