Storyline

Daffy Duck arrives at his vaudeville theatre to learn that Bugs Bunny has been given top billing over him. A competition ensues with Daffy out to get the top billing he deserves. Bugs seems to be the crowd favorite however as Daffy can't seem to best him in dancing, a magic act, juggling or in playing musical instruments. It pushes Daffy to extreme measures.

Relies on the characters rather than material and just about gets away with it
5 May 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are a dancing double act in a vaudeville theatre. However Daffy is not content for equal billing and wants to have all the glory for himself. He challenges Bugs that whatever he can do, Daffy can do better. Bugs does his stuff on stage to great acclaim from the audience, but everything Daffy tries is greeted with all the appreciate of a f*rt in a lift. As the stakes continue to rise, Daffy increasingly pulls out all the stops.

I love Daffy Duck a great deal but much prefer him when he is in full-on wacky mode rather than the more greedy duck of his later cartoons. In this short we see Daffy being his greedy self but him being pushed to crazy limits reminds me of whom he once was. The material is not that good when I think about it and some of the gags are a little under whelming but it still manages to be pretty amusing. The ending is OK but it has been done elsewhere to better effect with Porky Pig and a wolf.

What makes this short work past the average material is the characters. Bugs' delivery is pretty fun although he isn't really his usual tricky self

  • all he's doing is being a good dancer. Daffy is also good and it is his


jealous rage that makes the material much better than it should be. His big finish is not as good as he deserved but up till that point he is funny even if he is not the Daffy that I prefer.

Overall this is enjoyable enough but that's it. The material is average enough and is pretty thin but thankfully the two famous characters both do good work to make it better than it really is.
