Daffy

Have always loved this one. It's all there, human nature. Chuck Jones is my favorite Hollywood film director (H/T Tim). I can watch those shorts over and over again and still laugh my butt off. It still amazes me that some of Daffy's asides to the camera and facial reactions are animated — to say nothing of Bugs Bunny, of course. They really do feel like spur-of-the-moment wisecracks that were luckily preserved by an alert cameraman, editor and director.

"Bugs is who we want to be. Daffy is who we are."

Chuck Jones (1912-2002), artist, animator, writer, director.
