Storyline

Daffy Duck is a Wild West outlaw named "The Masked Avenger", righter of wrongs and doer of heroic deeds. Porky Pig is his sidekick. Together, they search for Nasty Canasta, a villain whose crimes include gag-stealing and square dancing in a round house. When they find Canasta's hideout and Daffy challenges Canasta to a duel, Canasta flexes his hulky muscles that entirely rip away his shirt, and proceeds to pound Daffy into a stupor.

Pretty uninspiring stuff
27 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Driven by a desire to see wrongs righted (and claim the massive reward), the Masked Avenger decides to go after criminal Nasty Canasta and bring him to justice. However, Canasta proves to be more than a match for the Avenger - mask or no mask.

I'm a big fan of Daffy Duck but I vastly prefer him when he is in fully `crazy' mood, doing all sorts of manic things; I find that much funnier than his later greedy & selfish personae. Here, however he is in selfish mode - not in itself a sign of a bad cartoon, but here it is all part of the problem. Along with Porky as comedy relief, Daffy goes after a criminal but has very little response form him. Why the script decided to do this is beyond me as it means there is very little happening to really laugh at. The material throughout is pretty uninspiring and relies heavily on Daffy's delivery alone to make it enjoyable.

Sadly, for me, Daffy's greedy character just isn't that funny at times (here being one of them) and his delivery in this cartoon is average at best. It's the fault of the material of course, and I was surprised just how weak the whole thing was. Porky is named the comedy relief but he has absolutely nothing to do outside of two or three lines of dialogue. Canasta is like some of the other `old west' villains that have tangled with other WB characters, but the decision to have him do almost nothing was a daft one.

Overall this cartoon offers two big names and a mildly amusing set up, but, like me, I imagine many people will be bewildered by just how uninspiring the thing is.
