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.

Did You Know?


Warner Brothers actually used a picture of Duck Twacy for a pamphlet about non-discrimination against homosexuals. The hat was gray, but so was the hat in the Piggy Bank robbery. See more »

Hilarious parody of Dick Tracy with cameos from a ham and another detective.
27 October 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is Bob Clampett's best short at Warner Brothers, as he affectionately sends up Dick Tracy, even to the extent of including a real Dick Tracy villain or three in a couple of scenes. There's a cameo by Porky Pig in the dream sequence and Daffy as Duck Twacy has an amusing run-in with the most well-known resident of Baker Street in London, circa late 1800s. The Clampett Duck Twacy villains are indeed a fascinating lot, almost as good as some of Gould's villains. Great fun and much more fun than the movie version (and much shorter). One of Daffy's shining hours. Has a great ending. Well worth watching. Most highly recommended.
