“Blessings On Thee, Little Man”

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on January 30, 2004

   In Ain’t That Ducky (Freleng, 1945), Daffy approaches the obnoxious, crying little duck and says “Blessings on thee, little man, barefoot duck.” This is a parody of a James Whitcomb Riley poem that begins “Blessings on thee little man/ Barefoot boy with cheeks of tan.”
