While being very, very simple, thanks to Daffy it is amusing
17 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't think Don't Axe Me is the best Looney Tunes cartoon, but it is a nice and amusing one. The trouble is that the story is very very simple, and while there is some good humour, compared to other Daffy Duck cartoons it felt a tad humourless. Also as much as I like Elmer he is slightly blander than he usually is. Still, the quality of the animation is excellent, as you would expect in general with Looney Tunes. And Daffy while he has been better, is great, mixing his manic persona with his cynical one. I admit it though I prefer him when he is manic, it is so much fun when he is. Mel Blanc as always does a stellar job bringing Daffy to life.

All in all, this is nice to watch, if rather simple in comparison to other Daffy cartoons. 7/10 Bethany Cox
