A simple Looney Tunes cartoon while still being highly enjoyable
15 January 2009 | by MightyzebraSee all my reviews

This is a good, "comforting" Looney Tunes cartoon. It is comforting because there is little heavy slapstick and humour going on which almost every Looney Tunes seems to have (it does not make the average Looney Tunes cartoon worse for me, but it is good to have a change). It still has a few very funny jokes, traditional of Looney Tunes, but it is still nicely predictable and slowed down (in an odd way). One way this is done is with the animation. There is a subtle and peaceful yellow tone to this cartoon. Most of the things in the backgrounds, and even in Elmer Fudd's and his wife's face is yellow, without overdoing it.

Anyhow, the main star of this cartoon is Daffy Duck. He is a farm animal owned by Elmer Fudd in this cartoon and is very greedy. Both Elmer Fudd and his dog are becoming very stressed with Daffy. That is why they both become very excited when a visitor is coming round. The dog has decided that Daffy should be the main meal..!

I like this cartoon because of the difference of it, I quite like Daffy (although this is not my favourite personality of his) and I like the animation and some of the jokes.

I recommend this cartoon to anyone who enjoys a calmer, simpler Looney Tune. Enjoy "Don't Axe Me"! :-)
