Trivia

Many of the signs leading the caveman to the duck are parodies of 1930s-era ad slogans: "Cavemen Choose Duckies 2 to 1" is a parody of a Lucky Strike cigarette slogan, "People Choose Luckies 2 to 1." The Caveman is a parody of comedian Jack Benny. See more »

Prehistoric Hijinks
19 January 2004 | by (Pocatello, Idaho, USA) – See all my reviews

Daffy Duck & the Dinosaur employs some good, solid gags, but I'm not a huge fan of the early, manic-like Daffy. I thought the real star of the show was Casper Caveman, who is supposedly a caricature of Jack Benny (I'll take Paul Penna's word for it, because I really don't know!) Nevertheless, Casper had some great mannerisms and was just a funny, unsuspecting victim of Daffy's crazy plans. Speaking of crazy plans, the ending was also quite funny and refreshing when Daffy gets a little too caught up in his scheme. Overall, this is a good, solid Daffy Duck cartoon. It's not the funniest out there, but it definitely has its moments.

My IMDb Rating: 8/10
