Tease for Two is a 1965 Looney Tunes short directed by Robert McKimson.

Title

The title is a play on the phrase "tea for two."

Plot

Fortune hunter Daffy Duck drives his jeep into a grass field. There are several rocks pointing to a hole that indicates that gold is inside. As Daffy searches for gold, he pulls out the Goofy Gophers. Mac and Tosh show their deed to Daffy, but Daffy fishes them out anyway. The gophers decides to "teach the rude duck a valuable lesson."

The gophers dig back into their home and then hand a stick of dynamite to Daffy's outstretched arm. Daffy attempts to reel out the gophers using a fishing rod with a cabbage as bait, but the gophers tug on the cabbage harder than Daffy. He uses his jeep to pull the leftover string, which breaks the van off its frame. "I never realized gophers were so strong." Daffy uses a vacuum cleaner, and the gophers counter with a bomb. After Daffy collects the bomb, he thinks he has caught the gophers. He places the vacuum bag into a trash can and covers it with a boulder. When the bomb explodes, the trash can and boulder squash Daffy.

Daffy uses a rifle, but as he sticks the barrel into the hole, it comes out of the bushes. Daffy then ties a ribbon on it and spots the one coming out of the bush has a different colored ribbon. Daffy realizes the fake and fires the rifle, which blasts himself. He uses a water hose to flood the hole, but the gophers use a cork, causing the hole to build up pressure and then launch Daffy into space and then back down into a water barrel. Finally putting a stop to Daffy's antics, the gophers move the arrow to point to the other side and they use rocks painted gold to trick Daffy that he found his fortune. Daffy cheers, while the gophers continue to throw fake gold into the hole.

Notes

  • The cartoon marked the final theatrical appearance of the Goofy Gophers during the Golden Age of American Animation.
  • Mel Blanc, who supplied Daffy's grunting, supplied Charlie Brown's grunting in You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown. The same grunt was also heard in Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown by Linus. The grunting was originally archive sound from "Hare Remover" when Elmer tries to feed the dog the transformation potion.
  • This is one of the few DePatie-Freleng era shorts to not feature Speedy Gonzales with Daffy Duck, the other two being "Suppressed Duck" and "Corn on the Cop".
    • This is also the final short in the Golden Age of American Animation where Daffy isn't paired with Speedy Gonzales.
  • This is the only cartoon where Daffy antagonizes the Goofy Gophers.
  • Unlike previous appearances of the Goofy Gophers, where Stan Freberg voices Tosh, here Blanc voices both Mac and Tosh.
    • In addition, the Goofy Gophers do not have tan bellies, as well as having slightly deeper voices than in their previous appearances.
