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.

Basically a collection of Looney Tunes cartoons with a bit of new stuff to tie it all together.
There were quite a few of these "movies" made during mainly the 1980's and they were all basically the same thing. A bunch of the original shorts tied together by some new animation featuring those crazy characters. However, some of the shorts are not fully in there, and the new animation sequences are quite weak compared to the old shorts which makes one probably want to just watch the old shorts again. This movie's theme is basically a ghostbuster kind of theme with Daffy Duck taking the helm. I would enjoy this except it is not the old really Daffy Duck, but the newer less daffy and more smartaleck one. The new stuff is basically copying the "Ghostbusters" movie especially the scene where the female duck is possessed. Still, the shorts are funny as we have some involving Porky pig and Sylvester and Bugs and that Snowman dude. All in all a rather boring effort on their part creating new stuff that just is not all that good. However, you are still treated to some rather good classic shorts anyway.
