Reviews and Comments

From TibbyH :

Robert McKimson was certainly a capable director, but I don't think a single cartoon he directed could ever top his first Looney Tunes short. "Daffy Doodles" is one of the pinnacle crazy Daffy cartoons, with him starring as the insane villain who paints mustaches all over town. This is definitely one of Warren Foster's best scripts as the humor and timing is near perfect. The animation is noticeably well done featuring a star studded cast of artists (who coincidentally worked with the zaniest Warner Bros directors). Carl Stalling seemed to bring out most of his favorite tunes for the score to this short. It's sad McKimson's shorts slowly trickled into mediocrity, but at least his earliest shorts such as this one hold up like a mustache painted gem.
