Daffy Duck is fed up with comedy and wants to try some more serious roles. He offers a script to the Warner Brothers executive “J.L.”, called The Scarlet Pumpernickel, which he wrote himself under the name “Daffy Dumas Duck.”

Jones described his version of Daffy as a character 'that expresses all of the things we're afraid to express'. And for me that's when he's at his best, as great as Duck Amuck is this film has much of the same meta commentary just in a more specific context, where Daffy illustrates his frustrations with the film industry. Great little satire.
