Quite amusing despite an unusually heartless duck
10 April 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Overworked with the high number of deliveries, the stork is covering a lot of ground. However his job is made a lot harder by the fact that, on each delivery he takes a toast. Meanwhile, Daphne Duck prepares of a little visitor - however the last thing Daffy needs is another child and sets up a defensive perimeter to stop him delivering.

I love Daffy Duck, but I greatly prefer him when he is crazy, in his early days - not only do I prefer his character but also the cartoons seemed to have more value placed upon them. Here we have a later cartoon that, despite all it's failings, is actually quite amusing. The plot sees Daffy defending against the arrival of a new child to his family and it sets up some quite funny gags and routines as the stork tries to get in the house. It is not hilarious but it is funny enough. The main problem I had with it was the actual plot - I didn't like the idea of Daffy basically trying to abort his own child (if you take the stork as the womb and the delivery as, well, the delivery - Daffy was trying to stop delivery). I know it is a child's cartoon but did we really need to see Daffy being so selfish to the point that he would abandon his children?

In this regard I didn't like his character here - greedy and foolish is one thing but here he is just too cruel. This is made harder because his wife (unlike the hen pecking version seen in Quackodile Tears) is actually quite sweet and would make a great mother. The stork is a funny character and plays a drunk pretty well!

Overall this is worth seeing even if Daffy is too black a duck this time (in terms of heart), the animation is OK without a lot of work being put into it and the material is amusing as long as you overlook the very obvious line with abortion (even if it was unintentional).
