Storyline

In this feature-length film combining footage from classic Warner Brothers cartoon shorts with newly animated bridging sequences, Daffy Duck, after having induced laughter in an ailing millionaire and forestalled the millionaire's death for a time (as chronicled in Daffy Dilly (1948), is the beneficiary for the deceased millionaire's assets. But the millionaire's will clearly stipulates that Daffy must use the money for the common good, by providing a service, and should Daffy think of pursuing selfish aims, the millionaire's ghost will "repossess" his millions by making them disappear from Earthly existence. Under the pretense of community service, Daffy opens an exorcism agency and employs Porky Pig, Sylvester Cat, and Bugs Bunny to track and eliminate ghosts, ghouls, and other monsters, while Daffy secretly schemes to use his learned "ghost-busting" talents to rid himself of the millionaire's nagging spirit.

The best Looney Tunes compilation movie
11 June 2011 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

Since I was a little kid, I loved the Looney Tunes characters.

Until this very day, I always find those classic animated shorts to be incredibly funny, clever and imaginative. The Looney Tunes shorts are timeless classics, that could be compared with the work of comedy geniuses as Charles Chaplin, Buster Keaton and The Marx Brothers.

in the late 1970s-1980s, Warner Bros. made a series of five compilation films, which blended classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts (post-1948/pre-1964) with newly made animation. One of the most common criticizing facts of these movies is that the cartoons are often edited (i.e. scenes being deleted, replacement dialogue, and so) to fit the premise of the film.

However, I think that "Daffy Duck's Quackbusters" it's the best of all those compilation films. It did a much better work connecting those classic animated shorts with the new story than "Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island". It also included two new Daffy's animated shorts: "Night of the Living Duck" and "The Duxorcist".

When I saw this film for the first time as a little kid, I enjoyed it a lot. Then, some years later, I watched again, as an adult, and I still enjoyed it. It is a good, funny film that works very well.
