A Pest in the House ★★★★★

In my opinion, this is Jones’ best take on Daffy and it’s because he’s having a swing at using Clampett’s characterization. And it really works! Plus...I dunno, “bell hops” are just plain funny!

God damn could Chuck ever draw a lummox! Marvel, won’t you, at the towering business-schlub driven to misdirected violence, all cause he’s just tryna sleep! 

Interesting use of Elmer not as antagonist, but as merely a put-upon bystander, just doing his job. The poor jerk!

Can’t wait to get together with the boys again so we can get wrecked and sing the high harmony on the refrain of “How Dry I Am”!!!
