Another rather dreary performance from the little black duck.
8 October 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

For many, this will be a good episode because they will find the slapstick funny and the drunk stork funny. For people with more heart and for people who enjoy episodes where Daffy is crazy or sly rather than mean and determined, this will not be such a good episode.

One good thing that can be said about this episode, is a new brief character called Daphne, wife of Daffy Duck. She is incredibly sweet and despite only appearing for less than a minute, she is definitely a highlight.

The animation is also quite good. Daffy has quite a good, thick-pencil style and same goes for Daphne and the stork. The backgrounds may remind you slightly of Dr. Seuss's illustrations, having a nice old style.

The stork is a very good character, you warm up to him at the very beginning and you find it funny when he becomes drunk.

Daffy is very mean to the stork and to what is supposed to be his baby, but luckily he is very nice to Daphne.

The episode introduces a stork going around the place bringing baby. One problem: Every time he delivers a baby, the parents have a toast and the stork always drinks too much. Later on, his next delivery is going to be for Daffy and for some reason the little black duck does not want a baby...

6 and a half out of ten.
