Wise Quackers is a 1949 Warner Bros. animated cartoon in the Looney Tunes series. It was directed by Friz Freleng. This short should not be confused with the 1939 Bob Clampett short Wise Quacks.

The film's plot centers around Daffy Duck (voiced by Mel Blanc) being Elmer Fudd's (voiced by Arthur Q. Bryan) slave so as not be killed and eaten by Elmer.

Production notes[edit]

The film makes several references to African-American slaves for comedic effect, and has Daffy uttering the line "Tote dat barge! Lift dat bale!" from the song Ol' Man River.
