Assault and Peppered is a 1965 Merrie Melodies short directed by Robert McKimson.

Plot

A bunch of starving mice are admiring Daffy Duck's Mexican plantation, aptly named El Rancho Rio Daffy. One of them suggests they ask if he can donate some food from his plantation, but another mouse says Daffy hates poor people and would never give away food. As if on cue, Daffy shows up on horseback and angrily whips the mice for "starving on his property," accusing them of lowering his property value.

The lead mouse says he is very sorry and they will leave now, but Daffy starts whipping the mice anyhow and announces his plans to declare war on poor people starting with them. One of the mice tells Daffy that Speedy will come and stop him, but Daffy doesn't believe him and claims that Speedy is just a myth.

However, Speedy is real and runs behind Daffy, frightening Daffy's horse which runs off and tramples its owner. Daffy angrily says he'll take care of Speedy before he returns to the mice beggars.

The two battle from private forts. Each uses 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 cannons, the cannons flip to his direction, and begin blasting him one-by-one. Speedy counts every time Daffy gets shot.

Availability

Censorship

  • 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.

Notes

  • When the mice first identifies Daffy, he is addressed with the full name, Don Daffy de la Scrooge del Meanie del Tora de la Quack, Jr.
  • 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  • It was submitted for the 1965 Academy Awards, but was withdrawn before consideration.[1]
  • The title of the cartoon is referenced in the video game, Daffy Duck in Hollywood.
