CotD: I can never pass up an Art Davis car­toon. “Mex­i­can Joyride” was spawned by a quick trip to Tijuana the crew took one weekend.

Mex­i­can Joyride (1947) — Looney Tunes The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Daffy Duck, singing “Gau­cho Ser­e­nade,” dri­ves down to Mex­ico for a vaca­tion. After a burn­ing expe­ri­ence with Mex­i­can food, Daffy takes in the bullfights.

As if at a base­ball game, Daffy heck­les the bull (“He’s blind as a bat! Throw the phony out!”). The bull chases the duck around the arena. Daffy tries the “Good Neigh­bor Pol­icy,” offer­ing the bull a “Cig­a­rette? Sparkling cham­pagne? A lit­tle gin rummy, per­haps?” Daffy pulls a hat trick, bet­ting the bull to guess what som­brero he’s hid­ing under. When the bull guesses wrong, he cries over los­ing his money. Daffy vol­un­teers weapons to help him com­mit suicide.

The bull chases the duck with a machine gun into town, where the duck packs his bags and dri­ves home, unaware that the bull is in the back seat.
