Daffy might dance his heart out (panting after his command performance) only to receive an ovation of chirping crickets. Bugs, on the other hand, need only peek out from behind the curtain to the sound of thunderous applause.
Apparently, that dynamic applies to this Blog as well!
Recently, I’ve posted DVD Reviews of both current Looney Tunes Superstars Collections: “Bugs Bunny: Hare Extraordinaire” (HERE) and “Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl” (HERE).
Reviewing my Blog “Pageview Statistics” for the period of May 2010 to October 2010, I find that the Bugs Bunny review exactly DOUBLED the pageviews of the Daffy Duck review – which is truly odd because they are essentially the SAME REVIEW, with one slanted more specifically toward Bugs and the other toward Daffy.
“Bugs Bunny: Hare Extraordinaire” 126 Pageviews.
“Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl” 63 Pageviews.
I can’t explain it… and all I can say is “Cue the crickets!”
Can’t you just see Elmer Fudd holding a “SmartPhone” (Fill in your own joke!), with Daffy trying to maneuver him to the “Daffy Page” – and Bugs turning him toward the “Bugs Page”.
BUGS: “Okay, Doc! Would you like to hit his page now – or wait ‘till you get home?”
DAFFY: “HIT IT NOW! HIT IT NOW!”
BUGS: “You keep outta dis! He doesn’t have to HIT MY PAGE now!”
DAFFY: “Well, I say he DOES have to HIT YOUR PAGE NOW! So, HIT HIS PAGE NOW!”
SFX (BUGS’ VISITOR COUNTER): “Ding!”
DAFFY: “Youuur Despicable!”
(With my sincerest apologies to the great Michael Maltese!)
Th-Th-That’s all folks!
