TVXOHOF, 02/2009-C: DAFFY DUCK

I suppose it's going to look either like quite a stretch that I've chosen Daffy Duck to induct into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame as the cartoon character for the third week in February - Black History Month - or as being racist.

Sorry, but technically, Daffy Duck is a black character. And because of his appearance on an episode of 'The Drew Carey Show', one of the more deserving animated characters to be chosen.

He's had several of his own shows, especially 'Duck Dodgers' and 'The Daffy Duck Show' and something of a TV movie with "Daffy Flies North". And the feathered wack-job has also been involved in several major projects that involved crossovers - like the theatrical releases "Space Jam" and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" as well as the PSA special "Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue".

And he's appeared in TV commercials for products like Tang and Post cereals.
So when it comes to induction into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame, February is definitely Duck Season!

You missed one feature film Daffy was in: Looney Tunes Back in Action c. 2003

And as for Daffy being "black", you need to read this right here.
