Very one joke but it works well
16 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Aqua Duck is not the best Looney Tunes cartoon but I for one liked it. The pacing is quite leisurely here, and the desert rat has little to do and I agree it doesn't have that much of a character. Daffy however does really well with carrying the cartoon, with both his manic and greedy not to mention increasingly desperate personalities merging. The animation is very nice, the story is good, the music is pleasant, the dialogue has enough wit and is funny and the visual gags(more the hallucination gags than anything else) are amusing. Overall, Aqua Duck is not an exceptional cartoon, but it is funny and definitely worth watching particularly for Daffy and of course Mel Blanc's superb voice characterisations. 8/10 Bethany Cox
