Who is Daffy Duck? Although Daffy was created by Tex Avery, it was Chuck Jones who re-invented Daffy’s persona as a greedy, self-centered duck, as exemplified in Rabbit Seasoning and Ali Baba Bunny. Daffy first appeared in Porky’s Duck Hunt, released on April 17, 1937. The cartoon was directed by Tex Avery and animated by Bob Clampett.

Notes from Chuck’s Diary…

To draw Daffy, get out your old swim fins, draw them, and hang a duck on the drawing. When necessary, he can look like a human being, but I like him to be bird-like. I might draw tiny breaks where the feathers show at his shoulders and elbows, but the breaks are less noticeable than on the Coyote, as feathers cling more tightly to the body than fur.

This detail is not strictly necessary; I break Daffy’s feathers because I want to and because it gives character to the animal. Also, unlike so many animated characters, Daffy doesn’t wear gloves. His hands have a thumb like a human thumb and pointy fingers that are a cross between human fingers and a bunch of feathers. In a human head, the upper teeth are anchored to the skull (until the dentist has his way with them), while the lower jaw–complete with teeth– can move independently.

Daffy’s upper bill, like that of the Road Runner or any other bird, is in effect his upper jaw, built right onto the skull and an immovable part of the structure. His lower bill is hinged to the skull and can move freely up and down. – Chuck Jones
