Daffy Duck for President is a children's book, published by Warner Bros. and the United States Postal Service in 1997 to coincide with the release of the first Bugs Bunny U.S. postage stamp. The book was written and illustrated by Chuck Jones, edited by Charles Carney, and art directed by Allen Helbig.

Plot

Echoing the popular "Duck Season/Rabbit Season" scene from the Bugs Bunny shorts Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning and Duck! Rabbit, Duck!, the book tells how Daffy Duck, in an effort to outlaw Duck Season in favor of perpetual Rabbit Season, attempts to become a politician so as to change the law to suit him. Through a civics lesson regarding the United States Constitution and with Bugs' help, Daffy learns that it is "We the People" who run the country, not any one man or duck as he experiences the separation of powers concept of the United States Federal government.

From the book's dust jacket:

"Bugs guides Daffy through the 3 branches of American government - the foundation of freedom - in a style so breezy and comic that you'd never confuse it with a civics lesson. Or would you? In keeping with the explosive fun of the author's art, Daffy Duck for President is presented in its original sketch form. It's pure Chuck Jones - brash, witty, and reflective - in a bold flash of pencil, paper, and impulse."

Film

In 2004, Warner Bros. released a four-minute animated short of the same name based on the book, coinciding with the Presidential election that year. The film was produced by Spike Brandt, Tony Cervone, and Linda M. Steiner, and was dedicated to Chuck Jones (who died in 2002). It was considered for a 2005 Academy Award for Best Animated Short. Joe Alaskey voiced Bugs and Daffy. It was also planned for a worldwide theatrical release, but these plans were aborted after Looney Tunes: Back in Action resulted in a financial disaster. However, it saw eventual release as a bonus feature on disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 2. The short is also available as a bonus feature on The Essential Daffy Duck DVD set.
