Daffy and his highly abusive family-:
27 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched His Bitter Half because I love Looney Tunes and I love Daffy Duck. The cartoon itself is wonderful, not Daffy's best, but highly amusing, and I couldn't help feeling sorry for Daffy. I mean he has to deal with not only his loud and abrasive new wife, but also her bratty son Wentworth, and with hilarious consequences. The constant physical abuse of Daffy, the part with the gun and the sling at the fairground and Wentworth's dynamite disguises are just a few of the highlights of this cartoon. The animation is colourful and lively, the music is wonderful, the dialogue is hilarious and the visual gags all work to perfection. The voice work is impeccable, Mel Blanc brilliantly voices Daffy and Wentworth, while Daffy's abusive wife sounds a lot like June Foray, and if it is she does a stellar job. Overall, a delightful cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
