The lyrics to Daffy's song at the beginning, as sourced from here.

Oh people call me Daffy
They think that I am goony
Ah just because I'm happy is no sign I'm looney tooney
Oh when they say I'm nutsy
It sure gives me a pain
Please pass the ketchup I think its going to rain
Oh you can't bounce a meatball
Though try with all your might
Ah turn on the radio I want to fly a kite
Good evening friends

Catchphrases (or variations of) used:
"I like him - he's crazy", "Ahhhh - Shaddup!", Daffy's freak out noises

Daffy's "What a revoltin' development this is!" is a catchphrase from the radio (later TV) show "The Life of Riley" starring William Bendix.

By the way- my mother thought this cartoon was "tedious" and totally unfunny. Would somebody please tell me what's wrong with her?

Porky and Daffy do Sartre—Porky's essentially trapped in the woods with a lunatic, not even having any inclination to hunt him at first.
One of my favorites as a kid, and one of the few truly successful "looney" Daffys in the (then) Warner-owned TV package.

I'd like to know where the phrase sung out "Good Evening Friends!" orignated. Is it from an old radio show? Bugs also sings it during "The Wacky Wabbit" after a duet with Elmer of "Oh Susanna."

It says:

"These are NOT [...] opinion-based threads.
Think of the threads on this board as more of a research archive. "

"Boobs in the Woods" was a Harry Langdon two-reeler in 1925 and an Andy Clyde short in 1940.

Here are a few ads. May and September 1950 and Nobvember 1951

The Pocahauntas scene was cut when broadcast on The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show, and was initially cut when it first aired on Cartoon Network (I think the scene was reinstated later on the network).

The opening song Daffy sang is a strange combo of "The Merry Go Round Broke Down" combined with the feeling of either the song that Bug's Bunny sang in "Hare-Um Scare-Um" or Daffy's song in "Daffy Duck and Egghead"--in fact, one of the lyrics, "Please pass the ketchup" is ripped wholesale from "Hare-Um Scare-Um". Emery Hawkins' bizarre animation only makes it even more entertaining (seriously, what is up with Daffy's eyes in the opening shot?).

Unfortunately, this cartoon was hit pretty hard by DVNR on the DVD set. I'm going to go into that when i get my review of Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 1 finished...one of these days.
