like Gordon Gekko said: greed is good
25 October 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Having escaped from a zoo, the Tasmanian Devil gets paired with Daffy Duck, as the latter learns that there's a $5,000 reward for Taz's capture, and that Taz becomes docile at the sound of music. "Ducking the Devil" is sort of a one-joke premise, but it keeps coming up with new ways to make the premise work. Like many of the Looney Tunes cartoons, this shows Daffy's greedy side (which always prevails over his cowardice). And if absolutely nothing else, it's always great to see Taz spin around like a tornado, sawing his way through any impediment. Thank God that Robert McKimson created him! Maybe greed ain't totally bad after all.
