He keeps getting into water he shouldn't: the aquarium, water cooler, bathtub, sink, as the boys keep rescuing it. They try to give the duck back to the Easter bunny - no go.

Sweet and amusing, if not among the best of the series
There are many classic Tom and Jerry cartoons(The Cat Concerto, The Little Orphan and Tom and Jerry at the Hollywood Bowl). Happy Go Ducky is not one of the classics, partly because it was one of the cartoons made when Fred Quimby wasn't in charge, but it is nowhere near as bad as what was going to come with all the Gene Deitch Tom and Jerry output(the best was Calypso Cat and that was only mediocre) and some of(not all, some are decent if not as good as those of the 40s and mid 50s) the Chuck Jones efforts. Where Happy Go Ducky isn't so good was in the animation, instead of lushly coloured and fluid like the best of Tom and Jerry the quality looks rushed and sparse with also a lack of vibrancy. Not all the pacing is as secure as it could have been either, it's neither rushed or plodding but there are times where it does lack crispness for my tastes. The music though is great, it is very catchy and enhances the action and how the characters are feeling, which in my mind is exactly like good music in good cartoons should be like. The story while routine is very sweet and charming, and the gags are amusing. The characters are all likable, it was nice to see Tom and Jerry on the same side and while annoying to them Little Quackers to us for all his limited vocabulary is adorable. In conclusion, not one of the best of Tom and Jerry, but it is a nice one. 7/10 Bethany Cox
