  • Trivia

    • The scientist seen in Water, Water Every Hare is unnamed here, but in an appearance on the Duck Dodgers TV series, in the episode "Enemy Yours", he is addressed as Dr. Woe.

      Though often mistaken for Vincent Price, he is actually voiced by John T. Smith, a voice actor with uncanny vocal similarities to Price.

    • The hair monster seen here was first introduced in the short Hair-Raising Hare (1946), where he was unnamed. Here, he is called Rudolph. In a later cartoon, Duck Dodgers and the Return of the 24½th Century (1980), he is called Gossamer.

    • The plot of Water, Water Every Hare is very similar to the short Hair-Raising Hare (1946).

    • The Chocolate Chase is very similar to the short Speedy Gonzales (1955), where Sylvester keeps away the mice from getting the cheese at the AJAX cheese factory and the mice use Speedy Gonzales to outsmart Sylvester.

    • The Chocolate Chase marks the last true battle between Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • Samples from Water, Water Every Hare are used in Skinny Puppy's song Deep Down Trauma Hounds (Remix) released on 12" Anthology.

    • The Evil Scientist's castle from Water, Water Every Hare are the first and last locations in the game "Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal". The Scientist also appears as the antagonist, this time called Dr. Frankenbean.

    • Water, Water Every Hare is 7 minutes 26 seconds long.

    • Water, Water Every Hare was produced in 1950, but was not released until April 19, 1952.

    • The Chocolate Chase is part of Daffy Duck's Easter Show, Daffy's award-winning Easter cartoon special.

    • The Chocolate Chase was originally released in 1980.

    • The scene from Daffy's Inn Trouble where Daffy tries to make a deal with Porky over being partners at the hotel (which ends with Daffy threatening to shoot Porky and ends up shooting himself with his own gun) was edited out when shown on the WB, TNT, and Cartoon Network. While WB and TNT used fake black-outs after the part where Daffy tries to get the gun from his holster, Cartoon Network used a dissolve to the next scene (where Daffy uses a boulder to crush Porky's hotel) after Daffy says, "So, are we partners?" and Porky says, "N-n-no".

    • Daffy's Inn Trouble is 6 minutes long.

    • Daffy's Inn Trouble was released on September 23, 1961.
