Funny and entertaining
22 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Apart from some moments when Taz is drawn a little poorly, Ducking the Devil is a fun and entertaining cartoon from Robert McKimson and featuring Daffy and Taz. Taz does work slightly better with Bugs, who can manipulate him easier than Daffy I feel, but his and Daffy's partnership is above serviceable. Daffy of course is great, and dominates the cartoon, showing both his manic and greedy side. The animation is colourful and crisp, the music is driving, the dialogue is inspired, the sight gags are imaginative and of course Mel Blanc's vocals are superb.

So overall, very entertaining that moves quickly and has a smart ending. 9/10 Bethany Cox
