Storyline

A time machine sends Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales back to Rome in 65 A.D., where they are captured for lion fodder as entertainment for Emperor Nero. Speedy feeds hot chili peppers to a lion, causing the big cat to shoot like a skyrocket. He and Daffy are chased by guards and fall atop Nero, breaking the Emperor's fiddle. Nero angrily pursues Daffy and Speedy as the scientist who invented the time machine sets it in reverse and returns Daffy and Speedy to the present, accompanied by Nero. Nero becomes a fiddler in Speedy's musical band. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

See Ya Later Gladiator [1968]
16 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a weird way, I sort of liked this as Daffy actually HAS good authority in a way to go after Speedy -the latter's musical mayhem-and in the main parts of the short, the two don't fight but go against Emprorer Nero and his lions. But yeah, this is far from the best. No wonder the two retired. BTW Marty, I've seen you on another forum I use doing those Daffy-Speedy threads..my advice is to watch it...

Oddly, the open theme music is somewhat good, and likewise the payoff gag at the end. I noted something. Besides Blanc doing all the voices on these, there is no star billing for the duck and mouse in these shorts, as with the newer characters - Norman Normal, Merlin the Magic Mouse,etc.etc.etc.

The open music, like that one most is heavily compressed even in the original version as shown theatrically, as far as I know.
