"It's a living"
16 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

What I can I say about Daffy Dilly that hasn't been said already? This cartoon is wonderful. The best of the Looney Tunes canon? Probably not. Worth watching? Absolutely! I first became acquainted with Daffy Dilly from watching Daffy Duck's Quackbusters, and even from watching it on television and my Looney Tunes collection, it never gets old. The animation is crisp and colourful, the music is playful and energetic, the dialogue is fresh and irreverent, the sight gags are clever and the ending is a great touch. Daffy is a delight to see and hear, and the butler is a good foil for him. Mel Blanc does a brilliant job with the voice work once again. Overall, wonderful cartoon, well worth seeing for the ending and Daffy. 10/10 Bethany Cox
