USE

This ranks as one of the funniest Looney Tunes cartoons ever and I'v seen just about everyone in my lifetime. It was puzzled by the comments of one of the reviewers saying it lacked imagination. I was quite an imaginative spoof of the old radio show and later game show (hosted by Bob Barker)known as "Truth or Consequences." The similar parallel has ridiculous questions being asked for which there can be no answer. The difference with sadistic host Daffy is that the contestant (hapless Porky) is brutually tortured (in rather innovative ways)with everything from boulders, safes and hammers to the use of dynamite, buzzsaws and even a gorilla. This is hilarious stuff and a must see for Looney Tunes fans. (Source: www.imdb.com)

QUESTION

The more questions he gets wrong, the more penalties Daffy gives him.Daffy Duck is an obnoxious radio host who puts the guest, Porky, through an arduous series of quiz tests.

Daffy Duck as a radio quiz-show host, and Porky Pig as his contestant. Daffy penalizes Porky very roughly if he doesn't answer a question properly or within the (ridiculously short) designated time. He: drops safes, boulders and waterfalls on Porky; forces Porky to name all 48 states in a very brief moment of time; locks Porky in with a ravenous gorilla and threatens him.

This ranks as one of the funniest Looney Tunes cartoons ever and I'v seen just about everyone in my lifetime. It was puzzled by the comments of one of the reviewers saying it lacked imagination. I was quite an imaginative spoof of the old radio show and later game show (hosted by Bob Barker)known as "Truth or Consequences." The similar parallel has ridiculous questions being asked for which there can be no answer. The difference with sadistic host Daffy is that the contestant (hapless Porky) is brutually tortured (in rather innovative ways)with everything from boulders, safes and hammers to the use of dynamite, buzzsaws and even a gorilla. This is hilarious stuff and a must see for Looney Tunes fans.

Porky Pig is on a radio quiz show called Truth or AAAAHHH!!, a somewhat macabre parody of the popular quiz show Truth or Consequences (but with potentially lethal consequences) hosted by Daffy Duck, sponsored by "Eagle Hand Laundry" ("If your eagle's hands are dirty, we'll wash them clean!"), and broadcast by the Ajax Broadcasting Company, in which the object is to answer near-impossible or ridiculously obscure questions. One such question includes: "Who, mind you WHO, was the referee for the New Zealand heavyweight championship fight in 1726?" (Somehow, Porky actually knew it was "Arbuckle Dreen," and even knew that Dreen's second grade teacher was "Abigail Twitch." Daffy turns to the audience, and shouts, "NO COACHING, PLEASE!"). Failing to answer the other questions correctly or in time gets him pounded in the head with a mallet and then requires him to "pay the penalty" (for instance, when Daffy asks who was the father of the country, Porky's stuttering prevents him from answering "George Washington" in time). These penalties include Porky being threatened by a buzz saw, blown up with dynamite while trying to name all the (then) 48 states in the US, being crushed by a safe, and other forms of abuse, while the prizes for some questions are similar, such as being crushed by the Rock of Gibraltar, rained upon by "genuine" water from Niagara Falls, and others, to Daffy's amusement. Porky is unable to ask for clues (for example, when asked what Cleopatra's aunt's maiden name was, he tries to ask whether is looking for her "paternal" or "maternal" aunt, but Daffy tells him to "watch [Porky's] language") and tries several times to back out, but each time Daffy manages to reel him back in, even shooting an audience member when he shouts "You'll be sorry!".
