Daffy, AKA “Dr. Duck,” has performed nearly every occupation – at least in his head. But there’s just one missing – coach! Gossamer and his friends approach Daffy and ask that he coach their water polo team. Daffy accepts, in spite of not knowing how water polo is played or even knowing how to swim. The kids teach him a life lesson about winning and losing, and he also learns that horses don’t belong in the pool.
Meanwhile, Porky is excited to get his catering business off the ground, but his healthy fare leaves lots to be desired. At Bugs’ urging, Porky starts using his grammy’s old recipes which are full of all things delicious like butter, sugar and heavy cream. Bugs can’t get enough of the artery-clogging food and resorts to throwing neighborhood parties just so he can get another taste of Porky’s cooking. His girth reaches new and epic proportions, and it isn’t until Daffy needs his help at the final water polo match that Bugs realizes just how large he’s become.
A new Merrie Melody, ”Laser Beam,” joins this episode. Marvin the Martian sings a 1980’s-style power ballad lamenting his dear laser beam’s sudden demise. It’s a heartfelt number that proves even Martians who want to destroy the world have feelings.
