Okay, and far from the worst Daffy/Speedy cartoons but still doesn't work
17 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Moby Duck is certainly better than Rodent to Stardom, Speedy Ghost to Town, A Haunting We Will Go and especially See Ya Later Gladiator but not much here changes my indifference- but not hate- towards the Daffy/Speedy series. Moby Duck falls under the category of not being terrible but never rising above okay. Mel Blanc still does a superb job with the vocal characterisations, he always has been consistent regardless of what is thrown at him and not only is he immense fun to hear but it is still remarkable at how he gives different personalities and voices to more than one character in one cartoon. The music is not as action-enhancing as Carl Stalling's or Milt Franklin's but it still has energy and character, there are some amusing lines even with the lack of freshness while the sound effects mesh well with the visuals and don't sound bizarre. There are some lovely colours in the animation too and Daffy is very well characterised here- not too badly animated either- if too abrasive at times(he's been worse though). The backgrounds are still rather sparse and look as though they were rendered in a rush while Speedy is a little more tolerable than he can be but is still not very appealing. That Moby Duck is very predictable hurts it too, the gags lack variety and could have been more crisply timed and the story is not much of a variation of what has been seen before and since with Daffy and Speedy, even with it not being set in Mexico. Daffy and Speedy are not exactly bland together, but I do have to agree that their pairing is a rather odd one that has never really gelled. All in all, doesn't work but never reaches terrible level, that said it's not more than okay either. 5/10 Bethany Cox
