Reasonable, saved by Mel Blanc's characterisations and the characters of Daffy and Speedy, but it is spoiled by some moments of lacklustre material and rushed animation
17 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I moderately enjoyed the Astro Duck, but for me it could've been better.

Well there are some definite good things. Daffy while not as manic as he is best at, is reasonably fun to watch, but in a rare finding, he is out shadowed by Speedy. Both toons have been better, but they were fun to watch. And I must give credit to Mel Blanc, who excelled in both characterisations of Daffy and Speedy. The music is lovely, and there are some good visual gags.

However, there were other elements that made this cartoon disappointing. The animation was one, instead of the slick and colourful animation that makes the best of the Looney Tunes cartoons so good, it felt here rather rushed and lacked finesse in spots. Also, whereas most of the visual gags were great, parts of the script were lacking. Somehow it doesn't have the wit or the zaniness of other Daffy cartoons, and some worked if only for Blanc's delivery. The pace was a tad too fast in places as well. In some respect, the whole short felt rather rushed, not only in pace but in quality.

All in all, reasonable, but one of my least favourite Daffy cartoons, and that is a shame because I like him ever so much. 6/10 Bethany Cox
