Hilarious cartoon with great star gags for those that get them
13 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Seeking fame and fortune in the picture business, the little black duck arrives in Hollywood and makes a bee line for Warmer Brothers studio where he hopes to meet the stars and land a contract. However, the studio has a guard who is determined not to let anyone in.

Starting with the little black duck in manic form, this cartoon offered real promise as Daffy is never better than when he is being crazy rather than greedy. The plot is a basic chase around the studio, with Daffy doing crazy tricks to outwit the guard; as a manic chase the film is very funny and it could have just done that and still been great fun, however it uses it's studio location a lot better than that.

The film is full of look-alike cameos and references to stars. I'll be honest and say that I didn't understand all of them, but the vast majority are recognisable and very funny. Some of them are basic spoofs, others jokes dig at the physical traits of the stars. Two of my favourite jokes were quite barbed - one I didn't totally get was digging at the then studio head's inability to win an Oscar, but my favourite was hilarious and will hopefully go over the heads of children: sweet talking the guard, Daffy says `what has Errol Flynn got that you haven't got?' before quickly turning to the audience and saying `don't answer that!' - a reference to Flynn's legendary appendage!

Daffy is really good here - I love him in full on manic role and it always saddens me to see how time changed and betrayed his character just to squeeze more cartoons out of him. The cop is quite funny, mostly down to his funny voice. The stars may not be themselves but the impressions and spoofs all work and are very funny.

Overall this is a great cartoon. If you don't know much about old movies then you should still enjoy the chase and the manic duck; if you are familiar with the movie stars of the period then there is a great deal of fun to be had here in this tremendous cartoon from the little black duck - `I like him; he's silly!'
