Along Came Daffy is a 1947 Warner Bros. cartoon in the Looney Tunes (reissued as a Blue Ribbon Merrie Melody on July 24, 1954) series, featuring Daffy Duck and two characters resembling Yosemite Sam. It was directed by Friz Freleng and written by Michael Maltese and Tedd Pierce. All voices are performed by Mel Blanc. Along Came Daffy is one of only two Warner Bros. shorts (the other being Honey's Money) in which Yosemite Sam is not paired with Bugs Bunny (although at one point Daffy does ask, "What's cookin', Doc?", a variant of Bugs's "What's up, Doc?" catchphrase along with the famous "eh" and the imitated 'carrot chewing').
Yosemite Sam and his black-haired twin are starving in a snowbound cabin. In a scene reminiscent of 1943's Wackiki Wabbit, the two hungry men start to hallucinate and see each other as food due to extreme starvation.
Daffy Duck turns up as a door-to-door salesman. Upon realizing he is a duck, the two Sams chase Daffy all over the cabin, to try to turn him into a duck dinner. Eventually Daffy is able to explain that he is selling cookbooks, and happens to have a complimentary turkey dinner with all the trimmings in his sample case. He lays out the spread and makes a quick exit as the famished Sams sit down to eat.
Before the two Sams can take a bite, a hoard of hungry mice dash from out of the woodwork and strip the turkey clean in a few seconds. At the point of despair, they hear another knock on the door. Daffy is there again, offering some after-dinner mints. The two Sams grab him and pull him inside. Daffy is able to stick his head out the door for a moment and tell the audience, "Well, here we go again!" He then gets yanked back inside and the door closes to a black-out that ends the cartoon.
