Amusing one-joke cartoon
11 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"Dime to Retire" was surprisingly good. Don't get me wrong, I love these Looney Tunes cartoons, there are just ones that I prefer over others. While very reliant on one joke really, the joke is amusing and is put to clever use. There is also imaginative humour that more than makes up for the rather episodic story structure. The animation is really very good with nice backgrounds and good character features, and the music is excellent. And while Porky is entertaining at reacting to things around him, it is Daffy who steals the show. I too prefer Daffy when he's manic, but he is really clever and funny here so I liked him here too. And as always, Mel Blanc does a stellar job with the voices.

Overall, not the best Looney Tunes cartoon, but very amusing and interesting. 8/10 Bethany Cox
