Looney Tunes Wiki

The Daffy Duckaroo is a 1942 Looney Tunes short directed by Norman McCabe.


On a donkey pulling a trailer, Daffy moves from Hollywood to the American West, where he comes upon an Indian encampment. He is about to run away when he is wooed by an Indian girl. He serenades her and follows her into her teepee.

The Indian girl says she would love to be Daffy's girlfriend, but her boyfriend Little Beaver will never allow it. When Little Beaver arrives, Daffy hides in a dresser and emerges disguised as an Indian girl himself. Little Beaver attempts to kiss him until he discovers the disguise.

Little Beaver chases Daffy through the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest until he calls for aid with smoke signals. The Indians surround Daffy's trailer and remove the tires. One Indian promptly returns them saying the tires do not fit his vehicle.


  • Red Skelton - Little Beaver's voice is based his character Clem Kadiddlehopper and the character Daisy June shares the same name as Clem's girlfriend.



  • This was the first black-and-white Looney Tunes short to open with the "bulls-eye" titles similar to the ones in Merrie Melodies but (usually) with thicker rings. This would continue for the rest of the black-and-white Looney Tunes shorts up to "Puss n' Booty" (1943).
  • This is the final Daffy Duck short to be directed by Norman McCabe.
  • The newspaper reads "I want to be a lone... ranger," playing on a famous Greta Garbo quote.
  • This cartoon seldom airs on American television due to heavy stereotyping of Native Americans, though it did air on Nickelodeon during the 1990s right up until the last installment of Looney Tunes on Nickelodeon in 1999.
  • The Native American at the end sounds similar to Marvin the Martian, who didn't debut until "Haredevil Hare" and didn't use this voice until the 1952 short "The Hasty Hare".
  • This cartoon entered the Public Domain in 1970.
