nice installment, 29 August 2009
Author: jmak_2002 from United States
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
This cartoon short starring Daffy Duck is rather good. I saw it for the
first time yesterday. It's one of the bonus features on the new DVD
release of "Daffy Duck's Quackbusters". I liked the cartoon and it's
satire on the Superman style, right down to the mangled announcing
purposely did for comical intent. By mangled announcing I mean playing
with the trademark lines in the Superman opening's of "faster than a
speeding bullet..." and at one point "pullet" is said instead of
"bullet" which brings out Foghorn Leghorn.
I felt the voice acting was good...I've never really been too fond of Frank Gorshin's take on Foghorn Leghorn but his Daffy impression was right on. Bob Bergen on hand as Porky is a plus. The cartoon being a little less than 5 minutes, give or take a minute, though, made for a rushed delivery. It's almost like the people involved wanted to get the cartoon finished and screened and perhaps thought with a short cartoon there's not much time for restlessness with theater goers. After-all, modern-day movie goers aren't familiar with the theatrical cartoon experience and might wonder what's going on when a cartoon pops up on the screen.
So, that's my theory why the later cartoons during the 1990's were super short by comparison to the classics from the '40s and '50s.
I give it 6 out of 10 stars...if you're not too familiar with these characters like I am, the distinct change in voice in Foghorn Leghorn will not stand-out perhaps. But, given that I'm a big fan of Looney Tunes, it doesn't stand up next to the classics but this doesn't mean this "Superior Duck" isn't any good. It still has Chuck Jones' imprint all over it.

Excellent cartoon in the classical style., 30 June 2003
Author: Akbar Shahzad (rapt0r_claw-1) from Karachi, Pakistan
This cartoon is fantastic. Featuring verbal jokes mainly, like the narrator's hysterical goofs. With cameo appearances from nearly every Looney Tunes character, even Wile E. Coyote! Porky returns as the ever-faithful Space Cadet, and Daffy seems to have dumped his old disintegration-proof vest. He doesn't have much luck with the new one either. It has two main focuses: one on a single character amid a forest of cameos and determinedly trying to succeed; the second on the unlucky and quite dim superhero. The animation is brilliant--Chuck Jones manages to create the same effect with all-new animators. With the theme of the fall-guy superhero desperately trying to make do in a cruel world, few beat the hilarious story of Superior Duck.

Superior Daffy!, 7 March 2002
Author: Ryan N from Austin, Tx.
To begin with it saddens me that Chuck Jones died before he got to create more great cartoons. This is a funny cartoon that involves Daffy Duck in a recurring time for the cartoon. The tape is a compilation of many Daffy Duck hits such as: Stupor Salesman, Golden Yeggs, Naked Stork, Design for Leaving, and Show Biz Bugs, but this new cartoon entitled "Superior Duck" is just as good as all the old ones. It's a bit random, which makes it funny. Some funny recurring jokes within the cartoon are all the "saying mistakes", such as "Superior Duck able to leap tall locomotives..." "Superior Duck, faster than a speeding building..." More things that make this a great film is all the akwardness and use of the "Looney Tune" characters. They are somehow able to fit all the "Looney Tune" characters when they are telling the "Description" of Superior Duck. All in all this is a good movie that deserves to be watched by cartoon lovers young and old. I highly recommend it.
