To duck...or not to duck... that is the question
7 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To Duck... or Not to Duck was a very good cartoon, if not quite outstanding. The story is on the routine side, and the cartoon starts off a tad slow in comparison to what happens later. But once we are introduced to the boxing match, which is by far and away the highlight of To Duck... or Not to Duck, it picks up considerably. The animation is pretty to look at, not the most pristine looking cartoon of the Looney Tunes cartoons, but it looks handsome enough to me. The music is very good, the dialogue is great(Daffy and Elmer both have their fair share of great lines but Laramar the Dog gets the best line of the entire cartoon in my opinion) and the sight gags are interesting. Daffy and Elmer are very entertaining, Daffy being manic and witty and Elmer being a worthy if clueless foil, while Laramar is great support. Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan both do a stellar job once again with the voices. Overall, entertaining and fun, not outstanding but very good all the same. 8/10 Bethany Cox
