Still Hilarious & Inventive After 50 Years
12 September 2003 | by (Ottawa) – See all my reviews

Easily one of Chuck Jones and WB's top five best cartoons, "Duck Dodgers" is still hilarious and inventive after 50 years. Daffy Duck, always fun to watch, and his companion Porky have to travel to Planet X to discover a precious atom. They have to compete with the Marvin the Martian for the discovery of the atom and the planet. I have to agree with the below user-comment that the opening scenes are breathtakingly surreal and mind-blowing. The cartoon is best appreciated if you seen the other Looney Tunes starring Daffy Duck and Porky. A classic.
