Any fan of "Casablanca" can appreciate "Carrotblanca", the Looney Tunes homage to the classic film. Daffy Duck takes on the role of Sam (Dooley Wilson).
Other characters include Bugs Bunny as Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), Sylvester as Victor Laszo (Paul Henreid), Tweety as Ugart (Peter Lorre) and filling the role of Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) is the cat from the Pepe Le Pew cartoons (who has several names, making me unable to pick just one).
Daffy's "Knock on Wood" rendition involves self-inflicted pain and he is quick to blame Kitty when Bugs recognizes just one note of "As Time Goes By".
Numerous Looney Tunes characters make cameos, but as always, Daffy clearly steals the show. Not much more to say really. This is another one of those films that speaks for itself.
