If you are a fan of Warner Brother cartoons, such as Bugs, Elmer, Daffy, Yosemite, Foghorn, and many others, then you will love this series. I couldn't disagree more with the moron who posted the review that slammed this series. My son and I religiously watched each episode as they premiered week to week on Cartoon Network. We couldn't wait to see the next one. We laughed so hard we fell off the couch. The one that mocked "Iron Giant" was one of our favorites (I go... you stay... no following). Not since "Samurai Jack" has a writing team given us so much to laugh about in one series. When it suddenly came to a halt, we stopped watching Cartoon Network. The more recent shows don't even come close to the level of this wonderful series. I feel sorry for the cynical reviewer who sounded so high and mighty about animation. This isn't animation. These are cartoons. They make you laugh. We love Bugs Bunny. We love Elmer Fudd. We especially love Daffy Duck. May you long live to make us laugh because.... you're despicable! (spoken with a lisp)
This is a cool series that takes old characters and uses them to spoof
Alien, TNG/VOY, and countless other sci-fi shows. The animation is well
done, and the voices are true to the characters.
I think that it is great for older kids and adults because of some of the inside jokes that may confuse. However, if you know a bit about popular culture, you will see lots of cool gags and references to modern TV and film. I especially like the design of ships, as the earth ships are very classically styled and the Martian ships are kind of like Akira class vessels from Star Trek.
The episode "The Fudd" is based on the concept of the Borg from Star Trek in every way. It was cool to see Trek being used in such a funny way.
My favorite part of the show is the theme song at the begining sung by tom jones it just makes the show for me. After that who cares. it does have it moments for me after all i always thought daffy duck was histercal and porky pig as his sidekick is great.
I think this is a very funny cartoon! It is a spoof of an old TV show
called Buck Rodgers and then came The spoof Duck Dodgers.
One time in late 1998 when I was out in Los Angeles, CA to see Hanna-Barbera and Warner Brothers cartoon studios, when I was in the Warner-Brothers studio, I saw a few posters of Duck Dodgers and I was thinking are they going to make a TV show of Duck Dodgers? Then I thought that would be funny if they did because of seeing a lot of space future adventures with Daffy Duck and Porky Pig, plus seeing Daffy Duck being blowin' up in action! Then 5 years later they made one. I watch it every Saturday Morning @ 10:30 am on Cartoon Network!
I am an enormous fan of animation and of the original Looney Tunes
cartoons. In general cartoons of this last decade have been awful or
shows that started off good but now mediocre. Duck Dodgers is a rarity,
seriously while not the best animated show out there in the world it is
light years away from being the worst. I'd rather watch Duck Dodgers
than something like Pokemon or Shaggy and Scooby Doo:Get a Clue, the
former had a great concept but the later episodes especially are really
predictable and the less said about the latter the better.
Back to Duck Dodgers, the animation is lovely to look at, not slip shod or flat, but colourful, well drawn and fluid. The galactic backgrounds often look absolutely amazing especially. The music is also great, the theme tune is very catchy and memorable, and the writing is sharp, not as razor sharp as the original cartoons, but sharp and funny enough. Yes, it was funny, there are many episodes that have many hilarious visual gags and dialogue to delight not only kids but adults as well. The episode ideas don't feel contrived or slushy, a major plus in my book, they are just episodes that spring from a great concept and work above decently with well above average material. Also the voice acting do really well. I do miss Mel Blanc I admit, he immortalised the original cartoons and was just a phenomenal voice actor overall. That said, Joe Alaskey, Tia Carrere, Bob Bergen, Tara Strong and Grey DeLisle all do great jobs with their characters. Speaking of the characters, I always delight in Daffy Duck, he has a witty, outrageous and manic persona that makes him truly unique and he is on top form as an incompetent space captain. Porky as the cadet isn't given as much to do but he does well with what he has, and the Martian Queen is beautiful and somewhat sexy.
Overall, this is if given a chance, a great series. Not as good as the originals, which I admit I wasn't expecting, but it is for me one of the better animated shows of the last decade. 10/10 Bethany Cox

I was never much into the Looney Tunes bandwagon (more of a
Hanna-Barbera fan actually) but when I first caught a glimpse of Duck
Dodgers on the Boomerang Channel, that was it! I have been following it
loyally ever since. The show is funny, very graphically-detailed and
well put together. The relationship between Dodgers and his "eager
space cadet" Porky kills me with laughter, as does his hi-jinx
confrontations with his rival Marvin the Martian, all amid
the "cold war/ us versus them" face-off between Earth and Mars. I love the ship designs , not to mention plots borrowed from other science-fiction movies and shows (i.e. the episode where the Martian Queen pursues Dodgers into a Nebula thus provoking a game of hide-and-seek a-la-Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan). I honestly cannot get enough of this show; for a cartoon, in my opinion, it is definitely up there with all sci-fi/comedy/actioners! Wonderfully thought out indeed.
Duck Dogers isn't the stink people make it out to be. Though it may steal jokes and ideas from other shows it also improves them! It usually has very interesting stories with good voice acting, which actually sound like the original characters! And occasionally has me rolling on my sides laughing at it's stupid jokes. Like the episode "The six wazillion dollar duck" with some nutty doctor who can't go without saying something totally hilarious every line he has! So give it a shot it's not a bad show one of the best new Donald duck shows! Give it a watch, you might find it brings back memories of the old WB cartoons, with a new style comic twist!

Well as with so many of the recycled cartoons out there I have mixed
feelings about duck dodgers. The show had a lot of potential because
its silly sci-fi and you can do anything with it. But then again as
usual they tried to throw in a bunch or lame jokes and clichés. There
are also a number of vague references to other shows and movies, which
go over a lot of people's heads. The animation is a bit above the
typical for a modern series and in an unusual twist the CG work does
not look totally out of place.
Over all I liked the series (Aside: and the Martian Queen) but it could have been made better in a few ways.
Okay, a few people have trashed this series, and a few others like it. I
would head more towards the like side, I don't think it's the best show
ever, but it's nice. Daffy, as usual, is the typical clueless,
loveable moron who needs his sidekick(Porky)'s help in most cases. These
try to add a science fiction-esque twist to the Looney Tunes characters.
While I agree that the series is not as good as the original 50's short, I
don't think the series is trying to take its place, and I think the
know this. To try and take the place of Chuck Jones's original
would probably be impossible, and I believe that when this show was
the writers knew this, which is why it is quite different from the the
original, and even its lackluster sequel. Still, it's way better than
Powerpuff Girls(gag me).
BOTTOM LINE: Although I won't be frantically searching this show out, it is a nice way to kill half an hour if I happen upon it.
i love duck dodgers a lot
there is a good moment from last week's episode that i find funny when dodgers met the green lantern before he got back his uniform and what is even funnier .. he was not in his uniform he was just in his feathers
now that i've got that joke out of the way,
dodgers should get more crew members for his ship to appear in season 2 [when that time comes] most of my suggestions for crew members would include; - bugs bunny [as a admiral] - pepe le pew [as a lieutenant] - lola bunny [as medical officer] - sylvester the cat [as engineer officer] and other looney toons characters - and the reason i'm making these crew character suggestions for season 2 is because that it's just only daff and porky i mean, daff should have improvements on that ship, to fit a bigger crew
i mean , let's face the facts , does dodgers not like being picked up no does he like having to eat disgusting parasites no does he like to see the cadet scared of various stuff no my point is, if you have more than one member on a ship there's a greater chance that dodgers will listen to not only the cadet but also the other members if it's just him and the cadet, then the cadet is pretty much is on his own
now to end this comment with a duck dodgers version of a quote from shakespeare's hamlet
"to quack or not to quack , that is the question"
