Storyline

Daffy Duck is a stow-away on a ship commanded by a portly, Captain Bligh-like figure, who orders his First Mate, a parrot named Mr. Tristan, to locate any stowaways aboard his ship and to provide a rope to hang the unwanted passengers. Daffy is found and sentenced to hang but offers to entertain the Captain with magic if the Captain will spare his life. The Captain agrees to this proposition, but Daffy is not a magician, and each of his attempted tricks fail, destroying the Captain's precious watch and exploding the ship's powder magazine.

Mel Blanc's voice work just about saves it from becoming a complete ship-wreck
23 August 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is agreed that 'Good Noose' is only really worth seeing if a Looney Tunes completest. Also saw it as a huge fan of Daffy Duck and who has enjoyed a lot of Robert McKimson's stuff. 'Good Noose' is among the worst for both of them.

Just about the only thing that just about keeping it afloat and from being a complete ship-wreck is the voice acting of Mel Blanc. He always gave his all, regardless of how good or bad his material was (mostly it was good and often outstanding, here it's pretty embarrassing) and that's the case with 'Good Noose'.

He really does try to inject some energy into Daffy, and his Charles Laughton Captain Bligh impression is spot on and easily the highlight of the entire cartoon. The pacing is not quite as limp as feared either.

On the other hand, 'Good Noose' is a cartoon on par with the likes of 'Pre-Hysterical Hare', the worst of Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote and the Merlin the Magic Mouse cartoon. The animation is very sub-par here, while not quite as much as in later efforts such as the Daffy/Speedy, worst of Roadrunner/Coyote and Merlin the Magic Mouse cartoons the smaller budgets and tighter deadlines are very obvious in very scrappy drawing, sparse and very limited backgrounds and flat colours.

Bill Lava's music is a discordant ill-fit, lacking any kind of energy, witty rhythms or beautiful orchestration, everything sounds cheap and dull and gives the cartoon a limp dreariness. The writing is lacking sharpness or wit, and instead sounds tired, while the story and its idea not only don't make sense, making even less sense than the chemistry between Daffy and Speedy in their cartoons, but also feeling like a complete mismatch, at least the Daffy and Speedy cartoons occasionally provided explanations for Daffy's pursuit of Speedy but the connection and ideas explored in 'Good Noose' baffles the viewer and continues to baffle the viewer when short-changed of an explanation.

Daffy is one of Looney Tunes', and animation's, best, funniest and most iconic characters, but, despite Blanc's efforts, flounders with uninspired material and feeling out of character.

In summary, Blanc saves it from being unwatchable but this cartoon sinks more than it floats. 3/10 Bethany Cox
