After reading his favorite Dick Tracy comic, Daffy Duck has a surreal dream in which he is Duck Twacy, a private eye on the trail of an army of horrifyingly grotesque villains who stole every piggy bank in town, including his own.
It's the start of the Baby-Boom, and the overworked delivery system is full of glitches: Mother Goose gets a baby skunk, a Scotty dog gets a little hippo, and Mr. and Mrs. Mouse wind up ... See full summary »
While reading his favorite comic book, Daffy accidentally knocks himself unconscious and dreams he's Duck Twacy, famous detective, trying to solve the case of the missing piggy banks.

Daffy Duck appears in a parody of Dick Tracy in this Warner Brothers short cartoon.
It is an inventive take as Daffy goes in search of the stolen piggy banks. Even keeping them in a safe place is not sufficient.
They get to parody the classic Dick Tracy villains with Flat-head, Pumpkin-head, Double Header, 88 Teeth, Batman and the most inventive of all being Rubber-head with his catchphrase of 'I'm going to rub you out' while making Daffy literally disappear.
Daffy is excitable, funny, he even bumps into Sherlock Holmes at one point. A parody cartoon at its best.
