I heard in the description of the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit:

Donald, in devil horns, slowly opens the upright and aims a cannon at Daffy who prams.

I first thought it was "preens" or "prances," but the audio doesn't sound like it. I looked up "pram", but the word doesn't have a meaning close to what the context asks for. I am putting the audio here for reference (available through an audio sharing site Clyp). It describes Daffy swiping his hair back in a smug gesture, as shown:

You misheard it. The word is the verb to primp, not pram:

to make small changes to your hair, make-up, clothes, etc. in order to look more attractive

Example sentence:

She primped her hair in front of the mirror.
