Storyline

Daffy Duck drives to Mexico for a vacation, and after a harrowing experience with the local cuisine that literally sets his mouth afire, Daffy goes to a bullfight ring to observe the spectacle. When Daffy jeers at the bull, the horned beast removes the clothes from the human matador and puts them on Daffy as a challenge to the duck to fight the bull in the ring. Daffy foils the bull with a proposed wager on a hat trick, betting the bull to guess which of three sombreros Daffy is hiding under. Daffy sees to it that the bull guesses wrong and supplies a machine gun for the impoverished bull to commit suicide. The bull realizes that he is being fooled and, firing the machine gun, chases Daffy out of the bullfight ring. Daffy scrambles to his car to leave Mexico, thinking he has escaped the belligerent bull. But the bull is riding in the back seat of Daffy's vehicle.

I liked this one a lot!
25 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story is a little routine, and it is perhaps two minutes too short. But this is a very enjoyable cartoon, that I wasn't expecting to be as enjoyable as it was. When I thought of Looney Tunes in Mexico, I immediately thought of Speedy Gonzales, which in general meant cheap animation, uninspired material and bad music(with one or two exceptions). Wasn't I surprised? The animation is nicely done, it is not the very best looking, but it is nowhere near as cheap as I thought it would be, and the music with La Cucaracha had some Mexican flavour to it and didn't feel annoying. The pace is fast, the gags are plentiful(any scene with Daffy and the bull is worth a number of laughs) and the dialogue is actually funny. Plus Mel Blanc's voices are distinctive and lots of fun. Overall, very good not outstanding but a hell of a lot better than I thought it would be. 8/10 Bethany Cox
