"No one knows his way around outer space like Duck Dodgers," proclaims Dafffy as he given the assignment to find a valuable material on Planet X (wherever that is, because they don't know here, either!).
This parody of "Buck Rodgers" is a hoot to view, right from the start with the wild 24th century look to it and exaggerations of the future. The color in this cartoon is absolutely bold and brilliant.
Duck's "eager young space cadet" is Porky Pig, who calls Daffy "Your Heroship, Sir!" Although our "hero" wants to take credit, it's the little assistant who points to way to Planet X. Upon arrive, "Dodger" plants a flag and proclaims in belong to Earth. A second later, we see the arrival of Marvin the Martian, who claims it for his planet!!!
There's a lot more of this craziness, making this one of the better Daffy cartoons. This animated short is very, very entertaining. Cartoon historians label this as one of Daffy Duck's all-time best, and who's to argue?
