Basic but amusing
7 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At Elmer Fudd's farmhouse, Daffy Duck has an endless appetite, to the point that he steals Rover the dog's food too. Fed up with this situation, the dog convinces Mrs Fudd that duck would make a great dinner. She dispatches Elmer to chop off the duck's head - something that Daffy is understandably against.

I'm a really big fan of Daffy Duck and always feel that he is at his best when he is in his early persona of being manic and wacky. Even when he becomes more cynical and greedy he still manages to be one of my favourite Warner Brothers characters. Here he is a mix of the two personas to reasonably good effect. The plot sees him avoid the farmer's axe and, while it is never hilarious, it is still amusing.

Rover has faced up to Daffy in other cartoons and he is a good character. Here he has a limited role but he still gets some early laughs. Daffy plays almost a Bugs Bunny role as he tries to outwit and get around Elmer Fudd; it doesn't totally suit him but it works well enough. Fudd himself is a bit bland and doesn't really combine well with Daffy in this case.

Overall this is a pretty basic cartoon that doesn't really create too many laughs and almost nothing in the way of sequences. However it is still amusing as it has some good characters who are funny in their delivery of some reasonably good lines.
