Storyline

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.

Clampett's masterpiece
27 June 2001 | by (Burbank, CA) – See all my reviews

Probably the greatest cartoon ever made. Hilarious, surreal, and exciting, a great example of what the medium of animation can achieve. Amazingly distorted and rubbery animation by the great Rod Scribner. This one really solidifies the earlier wilder Daffy's personality. It proves Daffy doesn't need any co-stars or straightmen to be funny.
