A Lesson About The Constitution
19 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This was a "first" for me: a short Looney Tunes cartoon in surround sound. It was great to hear. It's Daffy Duck, but done only a few years ago, in 2004.

Daffy's running for President of the United States and if he wins, one of the first things he'll do, he tells Bugs Bunny, is "outlaw rabbits."

Bugs quickly sets Daffy straight: a President can't enact laws; that's the job of congress. He shows Daffy the laws right from The Constitution. Hmm, Daffy isn't pleased. Bugs, for some reason, encourages him. "There have been a lot of funny boids elected to congress," he states, "but you would be the first duck."

Soon, Daffy comes back an elected congressman from Long Island, telling Bugs he'll make a law ordering rabbit season to be "a minimum of 12 months a year." Bugs doesn't seem perturbed.

Daffy's "no more duck season" bill fails, as does his other political efforts which includes a trip to the Supreme Court, on Bugs' suggestion.

In all, this is a quick civics lesson; not very funny, but informative. Lost in the politics is the colorful artwork and the decent job done by Joe Alaskey who performs double duty, voicing both Daffy and Bugs. He does a fine job, particularly with Daffy. It would be harder to match the great Mel Blanc as Bugs.

I appreciated the final graphic in here that says, "In loving memory of Chuck Jones." That was nice. This can be seen as part of the "features" on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Three DVD.
