"Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies" #128, June 1952: "Elmer Fudd and Daffy Duck"
Sniff sniff...what STINKS around here? Definitely not this brilliant story from "Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies" #128, June 1952. I have no idea who wrote it, but I believe animator Phil De Lara drew it, and they did a wonderful job. Elmer Fudd wants to go to his cabin getaway in the mountains to get away from Daffy Duck, who begs to come along. Elmer (foolishly) gives in, and they arrive at the cabin to find they're not alone. The skunk involved is not specifically Pepe Le Pew, but it's clearly his character design. Watch Daffy's facial expressions!
