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.

"Flat Top" is the only actual Dick Tracy villain depicted in the cartoon, but he is never explicitly named or labeled. He is shown launching miniature fighter planes of the top of his head (get it?). 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?
[opens his safe; it's empty]
It's gone! My piggy bank's been stolen! Oh, agony! A-go-ny!

Daffy Duck may be des-s-s-s-s-spicable, but his cartoons are great
Anyone who says that cartoons are only for kids must have never seen "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery". One day, while reading a Dick Tracy comic book, Daffy Duck gets excited and accidentally knocks himself out. He dreams that he's "Duck Twacy". After getting some calls about stolen piggy banks (and finding that his own piggy bank is gone), he sets about looking for the culprits. When he arrives at a house, he not only finds the culprits, but discovers that they're the weirdest group of gangsters imaginable. For example, "Snake Eyes" has dice for eyes, and "Batman" is a baseball bat. Needless to say, it all leads to a big showdown.
Part of what was so great about the old Looney Tunes cartoons was how they poked fun at the popular culture of their eras. There will never be another kind of cartoons like those.
