Norman McCabe
Story by
Ernest Gee
Musical Direction
Carl W. Stalling
Series: Looney Tunes
Running time (of viewed version): 6:58

Synopsis: Daffy is a military commander involved in manifest destiny.

Comments: While a sign says no dogs around post, the sentry (along with most of the rest of the troops) is a dog man. General Daffy Duck's scabbard is a bit sausagey. Daffy in a position of authority. Reuse of gun spitting gag, which then is more literally turned into duck spitting bullets. One of the Indians sounds like Eddie "Rochester" Anderson. Yanks beat Indians is a baseball reference, of course. There's an opening sequence of backgrounds, common in these Clampetts. Yet another shadow shot. Hotel ritz towel loin cloth. This is an especially ugly copy.
