A great cartoon. :-)
20 August 2009 | by MightyzebraSee all my reviews

I know not everyone may think so, but this is what I like... A crazy daffy, fun historical references (even if I do not understand all of them) and a very well produced mixture of sight and verbal gags. The idea is perhaps not completely original (someone trying to stop Daffy from reaching a goal of some form or another), but Daffy pulls off the episode very well.

In this episode, Daffy Duck has arrived in Hollywood and is INCREDIBLY excited. He hopes to meet all the film stars, but a policeman is preventing him from seeing anybody, as no visitors are allowed into the film sets. Will Daffy see the stars? I recommend this fantastic, exciting, hilarious and entertaining episode to people who like the crazy daffy (verging onto the more known greedy Daffy both animation-wise and personality-wise) and to people who like old cartoons in general. There is a little expected slapstick, but luckily not too much. Enjoy "Hollywood Daffy"! :-) 8 and a half out of ten
