Elevated by a brilliant Daffy
30 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't consider Thumb Fun the best Daffy Duck cartoon, but it is an entertaining one. It is perhaps a little too short and the pacing is a tad uneven. But I loved the story, and it was put to good use. The animation is also great, this is for me one of McKimson's more colourful cartoons, and Porky looks better than I have seen him in a while. The music is quirky and tongue-in-cheek, just how I like it. The dialogue is witty, and really does sparkle between Daffy and Porky, and the sight gags are very clever and funny, especially the end sequence with the thumb. Both Porky and Daffy are great together, but it is really Daffy's cartoon, he is still the manic and lovable duck I have come to love him by. Oh, and Mel Blanc does a stellar job yet again with the voices. Overall, funny and clever elevated by Daffy, but not the best there is. 8/10 Bethany Cox
