This is why they call them Looney.
29 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Like the Silly Symphonies, the earliest Loony Tunes were more interested in exploring the possibilities of animation than in making a lot of sense. In ‘A Coy Decoy' at least the title is apt. There is a book sale going on and when nobody is looking, the characters on the covers come alive.

Every cartoon had to have a song in these days, so we start off with a medley by ‘The Westerner' Porky and ‘Ugly Duckling' Daffy. Porky is really only there at the beginning because they needed somebody to set up the punchline at the end. The rest of the movie belongs to Daffy. The Duck cracks a rather racist gag involving 'Black Beauty' at the beginning, but since he's black himself he can probably get away with it.

Daffy moves to another book, ‘The Lake', while the ‘Wolf of Wall Street' uses a toy duck (the title character) from yet another book to snare that screwy duck. When ‘Escape' is blocked Daffy makes use of ‘Hurricane', ‘The Mortal storm' and ‘Lightning' to get rid of the wolf, ‘For whom the bell tolls'. We also find out that ‘The Bridge of San Luis Rey' is about a pair of dentures.

The main characters don't really have to act, just be themselves: Daffy has to be crazy, the Wolf has to be hungry and Porky, well he never had much reason to be anywhere anyway. In the end 'A Coy Decoy' does not amount to much more than a song, a chase sequence, lots of puns and of course a reference to the war.
