Subtly funny and emotional
17 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Looney Tunes were part of my childhood and I still love a vast majority of them to this day. The Henpecked Duck I liked as a child and just love now. The animation may be dated for some, but I for one very much love it, the colours are sumptuous and shadowy and Daffy is very well animated, right from his desperation to his sadness at the start. The music is energetic and beautifully orchestrated, with some old favourites like Home Sweet Home and the Midsummer Nights Dream Wedding March being fun to spot. The story is well-paced and always engaging, while the writing is subtly funny(like the joke with the chicken) and the more emotional moments like at the start and when Daffy is pleading with Porky(in the role of the judge) are done with real pathos. Daffy I really felt sorry for in The Henpecked Duck, this is different from the manic or greedy personas he's known for, this is a more poignant approach which I think would have worked better than the other two, and you do identify with him as a result. Especially when, while not as bad as the wife figures in Quackodile Tears and His Bitter Half, he has such a bitch of a wife. Porky doesn't have as much to do, but he is also good. Mel Blanc is even better in cartoons later on, but still voices his characters superbly. All in all, a great cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
