Golden Yeggs is a 1950 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies short directed by Friz Freleng. The cartoon was released on August 5, 1950, and stars Daffy Duck and Porky Pig. A forerunner of the Rocky and Mugsy characters appear, with Rocky already in his present-day form.

This cartoon was featured in The Looney Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie, with a different ending showing Bugs Bunny, alias Elegant Mess (Eliot Ness), appearing and the police arrests Rocky and the gang. But, another law loophole sets Rocky free once again.

Directed by I. Freleng. Produced by Edward Selzer. (uncredited) Story by Tedd Pierce.
  • [after being blown out of the pool] It was ghastly. The deck just seemed to lift up under my feet. Then I was in the water. Black, oily water! I struggled!
  • B-b-but I d-don't wanna sell him. [The scene cuts to the gangsters taking Daffy away, then to a beaten-up Porky] T-t-they talked me into it.


Porky Pig: J-j-jumping Juniper! A golden egg! T-twenty-four karat solid gold! I'm rich! I'm rich! W-who's resp-p-ponsib-b-... who's responsib-b-b... who did this?
Goose: I know who it was. It was me. But I'm no fool. I know what happened to the goose that laid the golden egg. [makes throat-slashing sound]
Porky Pig: W-w-well, come on now. Don't be bashful. Who did it?
Goose: I know who did it. He did it. [points at Daffy]
[The chickens lift Daffy over their shoulders, cheering]
Daffy Duck: Okay, so I laid an egg.

[last lines of the short film]
Rocky: No egg?
Daffy Duck: Gulp!... Uh-uh.
Rocky: So long, pal.
[Rocky aims his gun at Daffy's head and fires; Daffy ducks just in time, but the shock makes him lay a golden egg]
Daffy Duck: Huh? That just goes to show ya. You never know what you can do 'till... 'till you got a gun against your head. Well, Toodle-oo. See you around. [starts to leave, but Rocky stops him]
Rocky: Just a minute, duck. [points to a room full of egg cartons] Fill 'em up.
Daffy Duck: Oh, my aching back! [faints]
