LOONEY TUNES / "Porky Pig's Feat" - 1943

Here's a wild one from director Tish-Tash that they played a lot on TV back in the day. Porky and Daffy team up for some hilarious gags just for us.

What a great name for a hotel!

So, Porky is looking at their hotel bill, he's waiting for Daffy to come back with the money to pay it off, the hotel manager is there waiting on him too.

Daffy has just lost all the money in a crap game where he rolled snake eyes. He drags himself to the door and overhears Porky and the manager talking.

Porky saying that he'll be there in a minute with the money, the manager says... I hope so!

So, Daffy goes on offense, he runs into the room and gets in the manager's face, telling him that how dare he question his integrity!

The manager says... You have insult me! He takes his glove off  and raises over his head.

And Daffy gets a brutal slap in the face!

Daffy repays him with with a return slap, but of course our little pal puts a horseshoe in his glove before swinging away!

Daffy does his famous shuffle and grabs Porky and their luggage and runs toward the elevator, only to encounter the manager waiting for them there.

Porky and Daffy run back to their room and lock the door. So, the manager breaks off some railing for the stairs and charges at the door...

But Daffy pulls the rug out from under the manager and he goes tumbling down the mile high stairwell, ooching and ouching all the way down.

When the manager returns to try again, Daffy pulls the rug and they hear the manager apparently tumbling down the stairs, but it was all a ruse because he was just standing outside their door the whole time! The boys run back into their room.

Their next attempt is to tie bed sheets together to make their escape.

Porky goes first, followed by Daffy. As Daffy is is descending down to the ground, he has to stop and do a wolf whistle!

It could have been a woman in a towel after a bath, but, it's a pin up of a gorgeous gal talking on the telephone in a phone book.

Porky gets down first and tells Daffy to hurry up! But Porky gets an epic hot foot, he shoots up like a rocket causing him and Daffy to end up back in their room.

Then they try and swing across to another building but the manager is there waiting for them and they swing back into their room where the manager boards the window up.

Months later while trying to figure out how to escape, Porky and Daffy come up with a plan, call Bugs Bunny, our hero, he'll know what to do!

Daffy calls Bugs to ask for his advice. Bugs says, did you try the elevator? Daffy replies, yes. Bugs says, did you throw him down the stairs? Daffy says, yes. Bugs says, did you swing across on a rope? Daffy says, yes. Bugs then says... Don't work, do they? Bugs was in the next room  the whole time, trapped there too!!

This was the only appearance of Bugs in a black and white cartoon! Although the proto-Bugs appeared in PATIENT PORKY (1940).
