Cartoon of the Month: "Scrap Happy Daffy"

This month's cartoon is Frank Tashlin's WWII classic "Scrap Happy Daffy", which is, in my opinion, one of the best WWII-themed WB cartoons, as well as one of the greatest examples of Tashlin's directorial skills.
For this reason, I think it would have made a nice addition to the already excellent Tashlin disc featured in this year's Looney Tunes Golden Collection. If the inclusion of a future wartime disc would be planned, I'd love to see this cartoon on it!
And now, on to the cartoon itself!
(By the way, the one to post the exact lines of the first song number, with all the names of the objects that Daffy mentions at a speeded voice, will win the Rock of Gibraltar delivered personally by my friend Duck Dodgers! :P)

"Pleased to Eat You"

This cartoon, as strange as it can sounds, was rarely available to the general pubblic in his original form.
However, it was not shown with cuts or similia, but in black and white!

As the majority of the early Famous short, "Pleased to Eat You" is a terrific entry.
Most of the strenght of the cartoon comes from the vocal characterization of Sid Raymond, here in his Berth Lahr's Cowardly Lion persona (the same voice he used for Wolfie by the way).

Here you have the cartoon in good ol' Technicolor, has originally intended to be shown.
