One of the best loved characters of the golden age of American animation, Daffy Duck rose to fame after starring in Looney Tunes and later Merrie Melodies short films, often alongside Bugs Bunny with whom he shared one of the best known cartoon rivalries.
The exuberant black duck with his distinctive oversized yellow beak and feet made his debut in Porky’s Duck Hunt. The television short, also starring Porky Pig, was created by innovative director Tex Avery and animator by Bob Clampett for Leon Schlesinger Studios, which became Warner Bros.
Daffy Duck has subsequently starred in movies, video games and comic books abounding with Looney Tunes energetic slapstick comedy.
