Mister Anthony

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    John J. Anthony, on his 1930s-1940s radio program The Good Will Hour, would pass out advice on every conceivable human difficulty. There are two references in Warner cartoons to this figure, one being the puzzled and aggrieved mama gorilla in Baby Bottleneck (Clampett, 1946) who is confronted by the Daffy/Porky baby, the other being the obnoxious little duck who refuses an offer of assistance from Daffy in Ain’t That Ducky (Freleng, 1945).
