The series premiered in
1956. Stopped in 1962 after 27 issues*.
Initially, the title character was a
completely unrestrained, egotistic, and
hyperactive duck, who had no regard for others.
Over the years he has mellowed a little, and his
temper tantrums are further apart. His arch-rival
in many of the stories is Bugs Bunny.
The series is based on an animated
short cartoon series that ran regularly from 1937
to 1968. After that a few short cartoons have
been published erratically until today.
* The series changed title to Daffy
Duck after 14 issues.
