While reading his favorite comic book, Daffy accidentally knocks himself unconscious and dreams he's Duck Twacy, famous detective, trying to solve the case of the missing piggy banks. Taking a streetcar (conducted by Porky Pig, in a non-speaking cameo role) to the gangsters' hideout, he meets up with such grotesque criminals as Pickle Puss, Eighty-Eight Teeth and Neon Noodle.

Warren Beatty wanted this animated short to be shown before his movie Dick Tracy (1990). But Disney (who was making and distributing the film) refused. See more »
Say, it looks like a piggy bank crime wave. Why don't people keep their piggy banks on a safe place, like I do?

Daffy Duck cant wait to get the new Dick Tracey comic book in the mail. He's practically bursting at the seems with the prospect. When it comes he's so excited that he accidentally punches himself in the face and dreams he's Duck Twacy facing off against many a evil character. This cartoon is nut, but it a very good way. Clampett is always amazing and this short is no exception. It's everything a looney Tunes short should by: Hilarious, fast, and abstract to a degree. This animated short can be seen on Disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2 and also features an optional commentary by Contemporary Animator John Kricfalusi
