Yes, I love it!!
29 October 2003 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you what has to be the classic of all classic Looney Tunes cartoons. Duck Dodgers (or Daffy Duck) is summoned to head to Planet X to retrieve more of the shaving cream atom for Earth. He finds it (with a little help from his Eager Young First Class Space Cadet Porky Pig), but runs into trouble when he discovers that Marvin the Martian wants to claim the planet for Mars!

I don't care how many times I watch it, I still burst out laughing when Duck Dodgers makes out his plan and realizes that he doesn't understand it! This is one of my personal favorites, and I pity anyone who hasn't seen this classic cartoon. This is truly one of Chuck Jones's masterpieces. And now this comment is claimed for the Earth in the name of DUCK DODGERS IN THE 24 1/2TH CENTURY!!!!!!
