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.

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 »

This cartoon is one of the greatest Warner Brothers cartoons of all time. It's one of Bob Clampett's finest moments--from the beginning of the cartoon (when Daffy reads a Duck Twacy comic book) throughout the entire cartoon (when Daffy is Sherlock Holmes one minute, moron the next--while always defying reality/conventions) until the end (when Daffy suddenly finds himself kissing a gay pig in a mud puddle(!) that he can't escape from...)
This cartoon, "Coal Black and De Sebben Dwarfs," and "Draftee Daffy" are Clampett's best Warner Brothers cartoons and thus represent the highest achievements in animation... Why? Because... They make you laugh!
