A classic for Frank Tashlin and Daffy Duck
5 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Most of Frank Tashlin's cartoons are hugely entertaining and clever, they deserve to be better known as does Tashlin as a director. And Daffy Duck is one of Looney Tunes/Warner Brothers' best characters. Plane Daffy is a classic for both. The animation is fluid and colourful, with expertly camera angles(always one of Tashlin's directorial strengths), and the music is both lively and catchy. The writing is fresh and fabulously witty, there is some brashness but also degrees of subtlety, and to call the gags hilarious is an understatement, very hard to pick a standout as they're all great in their own way. Plane Daffy is easily one of Tashlin's funniest, and with the sexual tension and the caricatures at the end one of his daring too, managing to do that without offending. The story is not exceptional from a premise point of view, but the breakneck pace, the fantastic humour and managing to not be afraid of being ahead of its time makes that not matter at all. Daffy is on top form, the femme fatale character is both beautiful and dangerous and the voice work from Mel Blanc et al is spot on. Overall, a classic. 10/10 Bethany Cox
