Newspaper Thief is the 14th episode of The Looney Tunes Show.


Reluctantly, Daffy agrees to apologize to his neighbors about the awful things he's done on the holidays, until he realizes his daily newspaper, which he fashions to make a useless parade float of himself, has gone missing. All the neighbors Daffy has wronged are now suspects in his ridiculous search for his missing newspaper. Daffy goes to Porky for advice. Porky suggests that he should trap them at the dinner party that Bugs was holding, which was where Daffy was supposed to apologized. Daffy sets a trap for the suspects at the dinner party, who are Yosemite Sam, Granny, Gossamer and Witch Lezah. Daffy performs many tricks so that he can find the bandit, but all of the guests are innocent. The search ends when Daffy remembers that he forgot to renew his subscription. A greatly exhasperated Bugs promtly gives Daffy a good whack to the head as punishment for his stupidity, and a carrot pie plummets onto his head from the ceiling.
