Muscle Tussle

From Loonipedia

Muscle Tussle is a 1952 Warner Brothers Merrie Melodies theatrical cartoon short released in 1953 and directed by Robert McKimson and featuring Daffy Duck.


Daffy goes to the beach with his girlfriend and wants to take her picture. While posing she sees a muscle-bound duck and turns her attention toward him. Daffy tries to win back his girl and takes some muscle tonic which he thinks has made him as strong as the muscle-bound duck. Daffy repeatedly falls short in his attempts to demonstrate his strength, but through a fluke manages to get rid of his rival in the end.


  • The ABC version of this cartoon cuts the part where the big, muscular duck pounds Daffy's head into his shirt.
