Storyline

Daffy Duck is a mild-mannered reporter with a secret identity in this parody of the "Superman" serials. Daffy, however, is his usual inept, overweening self, ramming into buildings and rescuing submarines and trains from a non-existant menace, a villain whose voice he heard on his editor's television program. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

"This is a job for Stuuuuupor Duck!"
29 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Mild-mannered newspaper reporter Cluck Trent overhears a television program and mistakenly believes the villain on the show is real. So he changes into his super-powered alter-ego Stupor Duck and flies off in search of the fictional villain. He finds himself in one mess after another in his attempts to foil what he thinks are the villain's plans but are really something else entirely, like a building being demolished and a rocket being sent to the moon by the government.

Hilarious Daffy Duck parody of Superman. Being a lifelong fan of Supes, I naturally adored this short. It's a hoot with Daffy making an idiot of himself repeatedly as only he could. The animation is wonderful with nice colors and good action. The voicework from Mel Blanc and Daws Butler is great. A funny short that Daffy and Superman fans will want to check out.
