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, 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.

Another quick cut-and-paste job by Warner Bros. to generate some quick bucks, "Daffy Duck's Quackbusters" is just a wide selection of cartoon shorts starring Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Porky Pig and others. The whole thing is glued together by new animation that features Daffy in some odd situations as he tries to fight paranormal entities that are terrorizing others in the real world. The old cartoons can be caught at most anytime on the Cartoon Network or just about any place else now. Watching the productions as shorts are much better than watching a series in a 90-minute string. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
