Daffy Says...

Daffy Duck holds up instructions to the operating theatre audience in The Daffy Doc (1938). Not only do we get Hebrew characters, Daffy shakes the sign so it spells out “Silence is Foo!” To learn more about foo, why not check out Eric Costello’s Warner Brothers Cartoon Companion.

Vive Risto and John Carey are the credited animators, but Bobe Cannon did some funny stuff in this short, too.

    Mooch, of the comic strip "Mutts," says "Foo" frequently, so it can't be too un-PC. They used to cut that sequence, along with the scene later where Daffy hits himself on the head to summon ghostly "consulting" daffy docs, from the badly colorized 1968 version.
