Storyline

Daffy Duck takes his girl to a beach, where a muscle-bound duck attracts the attentions of Daffy's fickle chick. She leaves Daffy and walks off with the hunky duck. A salesman sells Daffy a bogus strength-building tonic, and Daffy takes some, thinking it has made him into a virile power-house! He challenges the muscular duck to a series of contests involving bar-bending, chain-chewing, and weight-lifting. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Melissa Duck: Goodbye, you scrawny little 9 pound weakling.
Daffy Duck: How do you like that? Calling me a scrawny little 9 pound weakling when it's perfectly obvious I'm a scrawny little 10 pound weakling. Hmph.

"And just who do you think you are, trying to muscle in on my chick?"
1 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Muscle Tussle is an amusing if somewhat unexceptional Looney Tunes cartoon. The ending gag doesn't quite work I agree, and the story is pretty routine, but I still liked it even with these faults. The animation is quite colourful and vibrant, the music is energetic, the dialogue is witty and amusing and the sight gags are clever. I also liked it that Daffy's protagonist role was dryer here, I do prefer him when he is manic and greedy but he is quite funny still when he is dry and subdued. Hunky Duck is a great supporting character, and Daffy's girl is cute. As usual, Mel Blanc is excellent. Overall, amusing if unexceptional cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
