Poorly animated and based on one single joke
13 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Speedy and his friends are organising a party and try to hide the fact from Daffy Duck. When Daffy comes along, they hide but he finds out anyway. Furious that they are not involving him Daffy plans to ruin their party by using a rain making machine, however the plan is not as easily executed as he hoped.

Another cartoon that opens with such basic animation that it is hard not to be put off even a little by how bland and empty the whole thing looks. This doesn't always mean that the cartoon will be of poor quality but unfortunately here it is part of a wider problem.

The opening set up scenes are dull and lifeless – the character of Speedy is so underused as to be pointless, they could easily have used any one-off character in his place, so little is he needed. The main body of the cartoon is around Daffy's fight to get his rain cloud to do what he wants but it is one joke stretched very thin with little invention to support it. The end of the cartoon is also lacking and is very obvious from the start.

The main failing of the short for me is the failure to really use Daffy as a character. He isn't really himself here – maybe it's the animation but I didn't get the sense of any depth to him, instead he is like a bland version of himself crossed with Wily E Coyote. This is a loss for me as I love his bitter character and enjoy him when it is brought out and used well. Sadly nothing was really done with it here.

Overall this is an one-joke cartoon which is not that funny, the poor quality animation shows the production standards for what they are – standards which sadly extend to most other factors of the cartoon.
