Funny spoof on the Dick Tracey serials
5 October 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Overexcited from reading his latest copy of his Dick Tracey comic, Daffy Duck accidentally knocks himself out and dreams of being his hero. As Duck Twacy, Daffy uncovers a gang of criminals stealing people's piggy banks and begins to track the fearsome group down.

Featuring Daffy in his `zany duck' period (as opposed to his envious bitter duck stage!) this cartoon nicely spoofs the characters and atmosphere of the Dick Tracey comic book. I am not fully aware of the comics but the recent film gives some idea of the larger than life characters and style. This cartoon lampoons that well and affectionately.

Some of the jokes are obvious and the spoof side will go over the heads of those with no knowledge of the subject but daffy holds it all together with his larger than life personality and crazy approach to everything. Porky Pig makes a brief cameo in a moustache that made me think he would be a larger character but it's very much blink and you'll miss him. The end of the film is Ok considering it's an `it was all a dream' type ending, and it does have a good line from a pig!

Overall I enjoyed this cartoon because I like both Daffy Duck and the fact that it pokes fun at the characters and style of Dick Tracey. May disappoint those not aware of DT as much of it relies on this but it's still worth a giggle or two.
