Storyline

Daffy Duck is ordered by his loud-mouthed wife to sit on their egg in a nest. When Daffy adjusts the nest to make it more comfortable, the egg rolls away from him and into a crocodile hatchery, where it is indistinguishable from all the other eggs. When Daffy picks what he think is his egg from the crocodile hatchery, a male crocodile gives chase and does battle with Daffy for the egg. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Fun and amusing, even if some of the animation is a little basic
17 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

Quackodile Tears is fun and amusing. While more reliant on slapstick humour than other entries in the Looney Tunes canon, it is fast paced and the gags visually and audibly are well delivered. Though I will say, while it looked nice, the animation was on the basic side. What I mean by that is that in terms of colour it needed more variety, and the character movements were somewhat restricted. That said though, due to the alligators who provided fun support, the manic antics of Daffy, the solid scripting and the excellent voice characterisations of Mel Blanc and June Foray, it is a lot of fun. While I liked June Foray as Honeybunch, her character isn't exactly the easiest character to warm to. All in all, amusing but is it the best? Personally no, but I would definitely watch it again. 8/10 Bethany Cox
