Hardly a riff raff of a cartoon at all, in fact it's great!
20 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I may be biased as I am a huge Looney Tunes fan and especially of Daffy Duck. But I did love Riff Raffy Daffy. The elevator gag is a little predictable perhaps, everything else is right on target. Porky is at his best when playing it straight and he does here. For me, he is not one of the strongest cartoon characters in presence, especially when partnered with Daffy, but at the rapport is good with Daffy. Daffy however is as ever brilliant, a great mix of manic and cynical with great charisma and wit. Mel Blanc's voicing of these two characters is superb, a standard that I have come to expect from Blanc. The animation has detail and vibrancy, while the music adds so much to the fast paced and fun feel of the short and the sound effects likewise. The story is interesting and not routine, the dialogue is fresh and full of witty humour and the gags are imaginative, beautifully timed and have the funny impact they should. Despite the sense of fun, Riff Raffy Daffy also has a heart-wrenching moment, the image of the gopher in the snow crying will be guaranteed to resonate with you as it did with me. All in all, a great short. 9/10 Bethany Cox
