    Daffy Duck is one of the main characters of the Looney Tunes franchise. He was created by Tex Avery and Bob Clampett. His best frenemies are Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig.

    Why He Makes Us Go "Daffy" (In a Good way)

    1. When he debuted in 1937, he became the most popular character who would occasionally steal the show.
      • In fact, when he first appeared in 1937, he was the very first of all the "screwball" cartoon characters, which is a trope of cheery, silly, crazy, eccentric goofball prankster characters with nonchalance for hyperactivity and mischief which he himself started, which paved the way to other similar characters such as Walter Lantz's Woody Woodpecker, Tex Avery's Screwy Squirrel and Disney's Aracuan Bird for example, which was considered pretty unique and original back in the day.
      • He, along with Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker and Tom and Jerry, were largely involved in putting an end to the cutesy cartoon characters of the 1930s and kickstarting the trend of zany-wacky cartoon characters throughout the 1940s-1950s.
    2. His famous rivalry with Bugs and Porky is very awesome and entertaining to watch.
      • His relationship with Bugs, as they used to have a form of rivalry that turned into friendship, is considered to be timeless, unforgettable, and a fan favorite.
    3. He even has a rivalry with Disney's own duck.
      • In fact, He and Donald's rivalry made perfect chemistry in Who Framed Roger Rabbit when they were playing pianos.
    4. His famous catchphrase "Youuu're dessthpicable!" never gets old.
      • Speaking of which, his famous laugh "Hoo-hoo! Hoo-hoo! Hoo-hoo! Hoo-hoo!" back during his screwball days can be seen as funny and also never gets old as well.
    5. He has a habit of fourth-wall jokes and entertaining viewers with his own gags, which is really typical for cartoons.
    6. His other personality is being a screwball egotistic character, which can be funny and annoying at the same time, and being humiliated for his egotism makes his antics much more fun to watch.
    7. The funny running gag in some universes, like Space Jam, is considered the least favorite Looney Tunes character, much to his dismay.
    8. Mel Blanc, as with all his other characters, did an outstanding job voicing Daffy, giving an amazing singing voice to him in a couple of songs such as "Daffy's Rhapsody".
    9. He greatly redeemed himself in 1970, and has remained his lovable self since then.

    Despicable Qualities

    1. His rivalry with Speedy Gonzales is often considered to be a terrible rivalry, and is more likely a rivalry fit for Sylvester since cats and mice don't like each other.
      • Speaking of which, this rivalry was also a factor that contributed to Daffy's atrocious flanderization in the Seven Arts era. Thankfully, he has recovered since 1969 after they stopped his rivalry with Speedy Gonzales.
        • He also got slightly flanderized during 1951-1963 as he was a screwy happy-go-lucky duck into a short-tempered greedy money-loving coward. however, he is still likable.
      • Although he is charismatic, funny, and very kind in The Looney Tunes Show, he has an arrogant, mean, irresponsible, very facetious, and temperamental personality.
    2. While very funny, he can be very mean-spirited when he was considered to be the least favorite Looney Tunes character when in real life, he isn't.
    3. He can be annoying at times because of his jerkassery at times, especially towards Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny, even as a crazy goofball type of character.
      1. He was a bit unlikeable in some episodes of The Looney Tunes Show, most notable is in the episode "The Float", were he was at his absolute worst (in terms of the post-1969 cartoons), despite Daffy get punished in this episode, he didn't accepted it.



    • As revealed in the video "Doug Walker's Top 15 Comedic Influences", he is placed at #1. This is because Daffy Duck's personality, energy, and wit as a "well-developed persistent loser who seeks fame and glory" is what inspired the Nostalgia Critic to have him fictionalized as a comedically jerkish and wrathful character who receives torment for being egotistical.
