Daffy's Diner is a 1967 Merrie Melodies animated short featuring Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales, detailing Daffy's attempts to make Speedy into a mouseburger. It was the final Merrie Melodies cartoon to be produced by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises.
Daffy runs a diner near Guadalajara, serving mouseburgers with rubber mice as substitutes for actual mice, as he hasn't seen one in ages. However, one angry cat discovers the trick and demands a real mouseburger. So by gunpoint, Daffy go to find a mouse. At this point, Daffy encounters Speedy, begging for food, who he tries to cook.
The mouse discovers his intentions and escapes to the desert, with Daffy in hot pursuit. Daffy is foiled each time by Speedy running up a cactus, Daffy accidentally knocking a cactus on himself, and being scared by Speedy into a trash can, prompting the waste management official to think he has gone crazy after Daffy tells him to put him down from within the can. (Speedy also doesn't appear for the rest of the short after that.)
Daffy returns and tries to escape, but the cat stops him. Finally, the cat demands his burger within two minutes, forcing Daffy to serve himself as a replacement. He states, "You never know what you'll do, until you've got a gun pointed at your head" (which was almost the same line Daffy used in Golden Yeggs).
