Duck Amuck (1953) — Mer­rie Melodies The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Stand back, mus­ke­teers!” swords­man Daffy cries, sur­rounded by Dumasian scenery, cred­its and music. “They shall sam­ple my blade!” But within a few thrusts and touches, Daffy notices that the back­ground behind him has ended: “Hey, psst, whoever’s in charge here, the scenery, where’s the scenery?” A paint­brush comes across the screen and puts down a farm­yard set­ting. Daffy leaps back in his mus­ke­teer garb, real­izes it’s inap­pro­pri­ate, and returns with over­alls and hoe, then notices that the scenery has changed into a North Pole set­ting: “Would it be to much to ask if we could make up our minds, hmmm?” And so it goes. After chang­ing from many clas­sic scenes and gags, Daffy yells, “All right! Enough is enough! This is the final, the very, very last straw! Who is respon­si­ble for this? I demand that you show your­self! Who are you?” Pull back to reveal Bugs Bunny, seated by a live-action animator’s light table, admit­ting to the audi­ence, “Gee, ain’t I a stinker?”
