Duck For an Oscar

Daffy Duck pretends to be an Oscar to try to get past the security guard of Warmer Brothers Productions in Hollywood Daffy (1946).

Who else but Mike Maltese would come up with this concept?

A desk and a mechano man (or is it just a glove) dispatches the duck,

This is from the Friz Freleng unit, so Manny Perez, Virgil Ross, Ken Champin and Gerry Chiniquy are the credited animators.


  1. Daffy never won nor was nominated though. I find it interesting that Sylvester won the most out of the Warner characters

  2. My favorite part of this cartoon, is Jack Benny trying to win an " Oscar " from a vending machine.

  3. Joe Besser is the cop (spooed,that is, Mel Blanc is clearly the one imiating him..)SC

  4. Why didn't Friz recieve credit for this cartoon ?

    1. I haven't any idea. I don't think anyone really knows at this point. There were a lot of fan guesses some time ago.
