From TibbyH :

Porky Pig and Daffy Duck were one of the best Warner Bros pairings and this cartoon highlights their strengths together. Porky is Daffy's boxing manager and he accidentally pairs the duck with a psychotic buff chicken for the craziest boxing match in cartoon history. I always had a fondness for the early B&W Bob Clampett cartoons before his Porky shorts got so utterly generic and dull. This cartoon, thankfully, is anything but generic and dull. "Porky and Daffy" is an off-the-wall cartoon with cute animation by early Clampett's expert team. The pacing is breakneck with so many well timed jokes at a super fast speed. I've seen this short so much and it never fails to make me laugh. Definitely one of Clampett's all time classics.
