??? "Wise Quacking" is a take-off on the term "wisecrack," in this case an individual who is in the habit of making wisecracks. Or were you kidding? I might as well explain myself on this one. If you repeat "What's Cooking Doc" and "Wise Quacking Duck" alternatively, you'll notice how strikingly si...

"What's Cookin', Doc?" became "Wise Quacking Duck".

The "Chase" wrote:^Does that explain on why "Porky's Cafe," "Dog Tired," and "The Bird Comes C.O.D" has no one credited for the story?

One source I've seen suggests pneumonia, but I can't guarantee its accuracy. Phil Hartman was shot to death by his drug-addicted wife on ...

Like most shorts Art Davis directed, this is criminally underrated. I can't think of single Davis short that isn't hilarious all the way through. Rattled Rooster , perhaps? Anyway, the classic «drunken character is trying to achieve their goal without realising or just literaly ignoring the danger ...
