Daffy Duck Slept Here is a 1948 Warner Bros. cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series, directed by Robert McKimson, starring Porky Pig and Daffy Duck. All voices are by Mel Blanc. The title is a play on the old cliché, "George Washington slept here" - also the title of a recent film.

This is essentially a sequel to 1947's A Pest in the House, which also features Daffy disturbing a hotel patron's sleep.

Plot[edit]

"Train leaving on Track 5..."

Porky is looking all over the big city for a hotel room, but due to a convention there are no vacancies. Porky takes the only available vacancy at one hotel, but will have to share with Daffy Duck, who is a very loud, obnoxious and annoying sort. Daffy introduces his invisible kangaroo friend "Hymie" (a reference to the invisible rabbit Harvey (play)), but Porky denies the kangaroo's existence despite evidence from Daffy getting inside Hymie's 'pouch', becoming partially invisible, and Hymie jumping around with Daffy riding in it.

Daffy spends the rest of the night annoying Porky: pestering him with questions, shaking the bed, spilling water from a glass, hogging the blanket and finally literally sending the both of them flying off the bed when Daffy kicks, and startles, Porky with his literally frozen feet. Fed up with his antics, Porky stuffs Daffy in a pillow case and drops him out of the window. As Porky goes back to bed, Daffy returns bandaged, but shakes them off and prepares to get revenge.

Daffy tricks the half-asleep pig into stepping out of a window thinking he's boarding a train. Daffy pulls down the blind saying it's "too gruesome" to watch. Suddenly he hears train noises, and behind the shade, sees the still-drowsy Porky pulling away on an actual train and waving goodbye at Daffy. Daffy finds this silly, saying that he should've bought Porky some magazines to read on his trip. Then he bounces all around the room, "Hoo-Hoo!"-ing wildly.
