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.

Interesting Collection of Shorts
29 October 1998 | by (Bloomington, IN) – See all my reviews

This is one of a series of movies collecting several Warner Bros. cartoons with a wrap-around story. In this one, the cartoons all involve supernatural or horror elements. Of those collected, the best is "Punch Trunk" (a Chuck Jones classic!) in which a tiny elephant is spotted all over town. Also good is the new short created for the film, "The Duxorcist," in which Daffy Duck tries to exorcise a gorgeous client. The wrap-around sequences, however, are less interesting and don't provide the anarchy and big laughs of the Warner Bros. classics.
