(From POPEYE FOR PRESIDENT, 1956)
I scarcely need remind anyone that today is one of the most important days in the history of American presidential campaigns. Yes, today isâ€¦well, it’s the day that the new cartoon DAFFY DUCK FOR PRESIDENT (based on a 1997 Chuck Jones book) is released as part of the LOONEY TUNES GOLDEN COLLECTION VOLUME 2.
Yep, in this country, anyone can grow up to run for President – and sometimes it seems like being a cartoon character actually helps. Heck, if you were a Fleischer or Famous Studios character, the chances that you threw your hat into the ring were remarkably high.
