Why Yankee Doodle?
24 April 2002 | by MoodriSee all my reviews

This is definitely one of Daffy Duck's best. However, I wonder why the term "Yankee Doodle" was used in the title. The cartoon was released during WWII, and Yankee Doodle was used in the title of a number of cartoons at that time, e.g., Tom and Jerry's _Yankee Doodle Mouse, The (1943)_ (qv). With that term as part of the title, one could expect to see soldiers; airplanes; military maneuvers; the bashing of Hitler, Mussolini, Hirohito, or Tojo; or at least something related to the war in some way. This cartoon has nothing remotely related to WWII. Perhaps 'Friz Freleng' (qv) figured it wouldn't matter to his audience.
