Hero Overview

You're despicable!
~ Daffy's catchphrase.
I'm not crazy. I just don't give a darn.
~ Daffy in "Daffy Duck & Egghead".
And don't get any ideas. I locked the glove compartment!
~ Daffy in "We're In Big Truffle".

Daffy Duck is the deuteragonist of the classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts, New Looney Tunes and Looney Tunes Cartoons, one of the two main protagonists (alongside Bugs Bunny) of The Looney Tunes Show, the main protagonist of Duck Dodgers and the tritagonist of the Looney Tunes film series.

He is Bugs Bunny's best friend and occasional friendly rival.

He was voiced by late Mel Blanc (1937–1989), late Dave Barry (1948), Jeff Bergman (1990–1993, 2011–2016), late Joe Alaskey (1990–2014), late Greg Burson (1993–1997), Dee Bradley Baker (1996, 2016–2019), Sam Vincent (2001–2006) and currently, Eric Bauza.

Personality

Daffy Duck was original an iconic animated screwball. However, ever since Chuck Jones took over the character, he was turned more into a jealous, arrogant duck who is Bugs Bunny's rival and occasional best friend. Daffy also craves the spotlight, which he rarely succeeds in attaining because of his best friend's fame, and has tried many attempts to come out on top, but fails repeatedly. He also antagonized other protagonists such as Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig and Speedy Gonzales, which also makes him an anti-hero and occasionally a villain in the series.

In earlier cartoons, he was usually undefeatable. However, when the company made Bugs Bunny, who became more popular than Daffy was, bit by bit, Daffy became more incompetent and prone to losing. Also, as alluded to above, while he was originally much more of a classic "screwball" character who was in his own world and caused trouble for others, but often unintentionally, Chuck Jones slowly changed Daffy Duck into a more sane, but jealous and occasionally, evil character. In the 1960s, this characterization evolved to the point that Daffy was often depicted as flat out evil, especially when competing against his rival Speedy Gonzales.

Daffy is usually underestimated by his enemies such as Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Nasty Canasta, Marvin the Martian, and Speedy Gonzales due to them being smarter and more competent than him. Often, Daffy's arrogance gets the better of him and he is defeated in the end, although even after becoming more of a bitter loser, he has still occasionally salvaged some victories against all the aforementioned characters.

One of Daffy's more prominent traits, later on, is his greed and love of money. For example, when he saw a mound of treasure when he and Bugs were traveling to Pismo Beach, he immediately wanted it all to himself, and when he heard about a $5,000 reward for the Tasmanian Devil's capture, he immediately went from being terrified of the creature to intent on capturing it to be the one to earn the reward.

Despite all his bad qualities and stints of outright villainy, he has also done plenty of heroic acts. For example, when he's Duck Dodgers, he's often trying to protect the Earth from Marvin the Martian and other threats. He's also teamed up with Bugs to defeat other villains, and in movies like Space Jam, and especially Looney Tunes: Back in Action, he's an outright protagonist; in the former, he joined the other Looney Tunes in defeating the Monstars to avoid becoming their slaves, and in the latter, he played a huge part in saving everyone from being turned into monkeys by the Chairman.

Heroic Acts

  • In Space Jam (1996), he teams up with the other Looney Tunes and Michael Jordan to defeat the Monstars.
  • In Duck Dodgers (2003), He protects Earth from oppression under the guise of his alter-ego Duck Dodgers.
  • In Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003), He saves Earth from being turned into monkeys by throwing his beak into the beam and holding it and swallowing it reversing it in the process and saves Bugs from falling.
  • In Bah Humduck: A Looney Tunes Christmas (2006), He redeems himself and gives everyone presents on Christmas Day after meeting The Ghosts of Christmas.
  • In Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal (2007), He teams up with the Looney Tunes to stop Dr. Frankenbeans.
  • He saves Bugs and Porky on certain occasions.
  • He is usually and secretly a friend of Bugs and teams up with him to defeat the villains who antagonize them.
  • In the New Looney Tunes episode "Hare to the Throne", He along with Porky help Bugs retake his place as ruler of a Kingdom in Hare to the Throne.
  • In the New Looney Tunes episode "Bugs Bunny Saves the Universe", he helps save the universe.
  • In The Looney Tunes Show episode "That's My Baby", Daffy saves Zachary from falling and getting hurt.
  • Teams up with Speedy Gonzales to thwart the lions in ancient Rome and get back to the present in "See Ya Later Gladiator".

Trivia

  • Despite being the deuteragonist of the series and Bugs Bunny's best friend, Daffy is also an antagonist or even an outright villain at times.
  • He shares his similarities with Donald Duck, his Disney counterpart, as both are anti-heroes and are jealous of the mascots of their respective companies (Bugs and Mickey). They both want to become the top star, but their plans are always foiled. But unlike Donald, Daffy is not the brightest bulb.
