Hilarious Daffy Duck cartoon, with some very clever movie caricatures
17 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I haven't been this entertained by a Daffy Duck cartoon for a while, and I have to say Hollywood Daffy is simply hilarious. So what made it so? Firstly, the dialogue, it was all very clever and funny but the best lines, most of which come from Daffy are hilarious! I especially liked the dig at Errol Flynn's appendage. Secondly, the studio guard is a great foil for Daffy, he is really funny with some wonderful delivery, almost like a childlike imitation, of some great lines. Thirdly, while I didn't get some of them first time, the movie caricatures of Bette Davis, Jimmy Durante, Johnny Weismuller(the funniest in my opinion), Abbott and Costello and Bing Crosby are very clever. Daffy steals the show though, he is wonderfully manic here. Hollywood Daffy is also elevated by some terrific animation, a fun orchestral score, even cleverer sight gags and stellar vocal characterisations from the one and only Mel Blanc. Overall, a wonderful and hilarious Daffy Duck cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
