Storyline

A time machine sends Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales back to Rome in 65 A.D., where they are captured for lion fodder as entertainment for Emperor Nero. Speedy feeds hot chili peppers to a lion, causing the big cat to shoot like a skyrocket. He and Daffy are chased by guards and fall atop Nero, breaking the Emperor's fiddle. Nero angrily pursues Daffy and Speedy as the scientist who invented the time machine sets it in reverse and returns Daffy and Speedy to the present, accompanied by Nero. Nero becomes a fiddler in Speedy's musical band. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Not even Daffy Duck can save this disappointment of a cartoon
25 May 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I really wanted to like this, while I love Daffy Duck I don't care much for Speedy Gonzales. I still watched it regardless and was disappointed. Well admittedly I have been disappointed with a vast majority of Speedy cartoons, but this in particular could and should have been MUCH better! For one thing, the animation here looks really cheap, no colour, vibrancy or fluidity, instead the backgrounds are lifeless and all the characters especially Emperor Nero look really odd. In short, it looks like mediocre at best TV animation standard. I didn't like the music either, generic and forgettable, and some of it was annoying. The writing was lousy, and the visual gags are very unimpressive. In fact, the sole saving graces really are that it goes by quickly, one or two "funny" lines from Daffy(who deserves better than this) and Mel Blanc's voice characterisations. Everything else is pretty much disposable. 4/10 Bethany Cox
