One of my favourite Daffy Duck cartoons
16 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always loved Looney Tunes and Daffy Duck is a big part of why. The Wise Quacking Duck is an example of Looney Tunes and Daffy at their finest. The kissing joke is rather old-fashioned, but that is not enough to spoil the fun. And fun there is. The writing is deliciously fresh and witty, again Daffy has the best of it and as ever Mel Blanc delivers them with relish. The sight gags are just as imaginatively timed and very clever, the striptease especially is genius and the ending is a delight. Daffy is an absolute hoot, deliciously off-the-wall and manic yet instantly likable. I find this persona more appealing than the still effective greedy one he's adopt later. Mr Meek is a good character also and works well with Daffy, if never really coming up to Daffy's level character wise. The animation is colourful and beautiful to look at, especially the panoramic view at the start and the music and pacing crackle with energy. So overall, classic Daffy, a must see. 10/10 Bethany Cox
