The very first cartoon in Warner Bros. popular Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner series of cartoons. This one has the Coyote chasing the Roadrunner using a rather ingenious invention combining a fridge, a meat grinder, ice cubes, and skis.
A mangy cat on the verge of starvation finds a tiny canary and a bottle of 'Jumbo-Gro' fertilizer, which gives him an idea that leads to giant cats, dogs, mice and canaries chasing each other round Lilliputian towns and cities...
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.

In the dream sequence, when we see Daffy's silhouette in the door of his office ("Duck Twacy"), the silhouette of Daffy briefly changes twice into Dick Tracy's silhouette. See more »

Daffy Duck's going nuts waiting for the mail. When it arrives, and his Dick Tracy comic book is there, he's ecstatic! Daffy is literally sweating as he reads about Tracy's crime-fighting exploits. By the way, once again, the colors in this Looney Tunes cartoon are fantastic. The bold, bright colors are just stunning from start-to-finish.
Anyway, Daffy just loves Dick Tracy and would give anything to be like him. After hitting himself and temporarily knocking himself out, he fantasizes he's "Duck Twacy" and the real fun of the cartoon begins as he goes to find out who stole his piggy bank.
I liked the 1940s' hat on "Twacy," the way he moaned "Agony!," his remark to the cab driver,the neon signs advertising "Gangster's Hideout," the trap door, and, of course, all the closeups on the faces of "Snake Eyes" and the other crooks.
I can't rave about this as much as some of the reviewers here. I've seen better Daffy Duck cartoons, but it's still a good one. It may be the most colorfully drawn of them all, though. It looks spectacular.
