|Assault and Peppered|
A bunch of starving mice are admiring to Daffy Duck's Mexican plantation, aptly named El Rancho Rio Daffy. They all wish to have some of the food in his plantation. Daffy shows up and angrily whips the mice for "starving on his property," since he isn't particularly fond of beggars.
One of the mice tells Daffy that Speedy will come and attack him, but Daffy doesn't believe him and claims that Speedy is just a myth. Speedy is real, and he begins annoying Daffy, causing the duck to declare war on the mouse.
The two battle from private forts. Both use weapons such as cannons and explosive mines. Speedy becomes exhausted from battling Daffy, and he quits to go home.
Daffy then declares victory and rewards himself with a 21-gun salute. However, as he pulls the strings to fire his rifles, the rifles flip to his direction, and begin blasting him one-by-one. Speedy counts every time Daffy gets shot.
- On CBS, the part where Daffy cracks his whip at a peasant mouse and the peasant mouse's sombrero splits in two (similar to a gag in the Chuck Jones cartoon "Ali Baba Bunny" that was also edited on CBS) was cut.
- The short's run time is six minutes, which is the standard length of a Warner Bros. cartoon since its pre-1948 days.
- This cartoon is a semi-remake of Friz Freleng's "Bunker Hill Bunny". However this time it has Daffy and Speedy fighting with cannons instead of Bugs and Yosemite Sam.
- It was submitted for the 1965 Academy Awards, but was withdrawn before consideration.
