Rather basic plot, but very funny and Daffy is just brilliant
18 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'd see any cartoon with Daffy Duck as he is one of my favourite cartoon characters. I do love Nasty Quacks. The plot is very basic and at times a little too routine. However, the cartoon does have great energy. You can see this especially in the animation and Daffy. The animation is as ever colourful and fluid. What stood out though was when Daffy was manic you could actually see it in the animation, especially the sword-fighting and the banging on the door. Daffy is just brilliant, this is him being manic and at his best, the charisma and energy of this zany character continues to astound me as well as his quotable catchphrases. The other characters especially the duckling make an impression but never overshadow Daffy. The music is characterful and enhances the action wonderfully, while the gags are very funny especially with the duck call and the perfume. The end gag is totally unexpected as well. Mel Blanc as ever is stellar. All in all, very funny with a brilliant Daffy, but part of you yearns for a stronger story. 9/10 Bethany Cox
