Storyline

Even in a future of rocket ships, videophones, all-knowing computers, and skyscrapers towering into space, there is need for law and order. In this futuristic parody of "Dragnet", Daffy Duck and Porky Pig are police officers Monday and Tuesday, patrolling the skies in their astro-car and pursuing a criminal named George "Mother" Machre.

The Visuals Are The Fun Part Of This Cartoon
9 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This takeoff on both Dragnet and Sci-Fi space stories is just incredibly fun to watch. Daffy Duck is "Monday" and his partner Porky is "Tuesday." ("He always follows me," explains Daffy.) They are space cops. We then get the old "Dragnet" Joe Friday narration of a case from the long-standing successful cop TV program. The more you know those old Dragnet shows, the more you'll laugh at this parody, even down to Porky's hat which was an exact replica of the one Ben Alexander wore on the show as Jack Webb's sidekick. As someone pointed out, the title is a reference to an older show called "Racket Squad" but this cartoon is strictly a takeoff on Dragnet.

The attraction of this cartoon is not the story but the drawings, the artists depictions of the future. They are both spectacular and full of humor. Check out all the signs on all the wild space stations, making fun of drive-in restaurants to space farms to police stations....you name it. (i.e. Notice the names of the most-wanted criminals on the typewriter keys.) There is a lot to see in this cartoon. These writers had some imagination!

It is highly recommend and can be seen on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Three.
