#87 -- Ducking the Devil

Title - Ducking the Devil
Director - Bob McKimson
Released - 1957

Interesting Fact -- Of all the Tazmanian Devil shorts released, this is the only one where he goes up against Daffy, not Bugs

Reason for Placement --

Once again, the Tazmanian Devil is on the loose, and this time, he has his sight set on wild duck... aka, Daffy.  Normally, Daffy is ready, willing, and able, to get out of the way as fast as possible.  However, he overhears a radio broadcast that says the zoo from which Taz escaped will offer a $5000 reward for the devil's recapture.  So, despite the fact that Taz is eying him for lunch, Daffy decides to try and lure him back to the zoo (thankfully, the sound of music pacifies him, so we get a couple great scenes of Daffy trying to either play instruments or sing to get Taz to follow him).  

Daffy's line says it best: "I may be a coward, but I'm a greedy little coward."  Thirty years later, Gordon Gekko would probably agree with you, Daffy.
