Synopsis: Daffy sells a kid's talent to Porky.

Comments: Nice door lettering. Golf clubs. Signed Bugs and Elmer photos n the wall. Possible abstract nude on the wall. Picture sign gags (ham, screw ball, corn). Heavy recycling of backgrounds, due to the near constant presence in the one room for two thirds of the cartoon (and even then, they recycle one background in several ways, as a hall, as a performance window, and then with an added couch). Daffy in Carmen Miranda drag. Al Jolson without blackface (I think it's him). Effects animation (or rather photography) with clear Daffys. One caricature reads "Love From (Uncle?) Friz", so presumably it's a caricature of Freleng. A surprisingly not patriotic movie, presumably it's just playing on the musical Yankee Doodle Dandy from 1942.
