(a reference to Lew Lehr's Fox Movietone News catchphrase, "Monkeys is the cwaziest people."). When Porky takes aim at Daffy, Daffy is able to continue taunting him, even dancing as a can-can dancer with a bullseye on his rear end - to no ill effect.

#15 - Hollywood Canine Canteen
Looney Tunes Season 1946 - Episode 8
A group of celebrity dogs, led by an Edward G. Robinson look-alike and including Jimmy Durante, decide that celebrity dogs need a nightclub of their own. What follows is very similar to Hollywood Steps Out (1941), except that all the celebrities are drawn as dogs. Notable gags: Dogwood & Blondie making a sandwich of bones; Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy washing dishes, with Stan putting the washed dishes back into the sink; Bud Abbott and 'Lou Costello' as dogs; a sheepdog with hair in his eyes who suddenly has perfect vision when a pretty girl walks by. In an extended scene, Leopold Bowowsky conducts an orchestra; after a series of spot gags, a tuba player misses his cue because he was getting a cup of water, then blows the wrong note because of a fly on his score. Bing Crosby, who was earlier greeting patrons, loses a girl to Frank Sinatra, who was hiding behind a pencil-thin tree. Kaynine Kyser leads his band; we see quick solos from several jazz players, like "Hairy" James and "Boney" Goodman. Finally, the payoff of a running gag: a soldier who had been waiting to call home to Massachusetts gets to use a megaphone with that state's name on it

#20 - The Foghorn Leghorn
Looney Tunes Season 1948 - Episode 26

Henery's father raids a chicken coop and walks out with a couple of chickens, but is stopped by Foghorn, who doesn't let Henery's father get a word in edgewise before kicking him out. When Henery asks his father if that was a chicken, his father claims Foghorn isn't a chicken but a "shnook" (walking away with a yellow stripe down his back). Henery goes over to Banyard Dawg's house, and knocks the dog out with a shovel. Foghorn stops them and asks Henery what he thinks he is - to which Henery replies that Foghorn is a "loud mouthed shnook." Foghorn isn't helped when the dog wakes up and kicks him, calling him a shnook.
