After reading his favorite Dick Tracy comic, Daffy Duck has a surreal dream in which he is Duck Twacy, a private eye on the trail of an army of horrifyingly grotesque villains who stole every piggy bank in town, including his own.
It's the start of the Baby-Boom, and the overworked delivery system is full of glitches: Mother Goose gets a baby skunk, a Scotty dog gets a little hippo, and Mr. and Mrs. Mouse wind up ... See full summary »
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.

Fast, furious and fun, plus original- everything a cartoon should be!
The Great Piggy Bank Robbery, what can I say. This is one of my favourite Daffy Duck cartoons, though Duck Dodgers in the 24.5 Century and Duck Amuck are my favourites. It is fast, furious, fun and original, like cartoons should be, and as a parody of Dick Tracy just a sheer delight from start to finish. Daffy is superb, manic and hilarious, and he is well served by superb dialogue, brilliantly timed gags and a great story. Other outstanding elements too were the spectacular animation, one of the best-looking Looney Tunes cartoons in my opinion, the rousing music and the brilliant vocal talents of Mel Blanc.
Overall, absolutely delightful, that delivered exactly what it promised. 10/10 Bethany Cox
