Storyline

Daffy Duck reprises his famous role of Duck Dodgers in another spoof of Saturday afternoon space serials. Assigned to locate the rack-and-pinion molecule needed for yo-yo polish, Dodgers and his assistant, an eager young space cadet (Porky Pig), crash their spaceship into a giant egg-shell, where they find Marvin Martian, who is, as usual, scheming to destroy Earth. Marvin asks Dodgers to visit the boudoir of Gossamer, a giant, hairy monster in sneakers, and the frightened Dodgers flees. Porky uses electronic clippers to literally haircut Gossamer into nothingness, and Dodgers, jealous of his assistant's heroism, repeatedly fires his ray gun at Porky's rear.

"Just follow the signs to Gossamer's boudoir."
29 December 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Chuck Jones' mediocre follow-up to his classic Duck Dodgers short from the '50s. This was originally part of the made-for-TV special Daffy Duck's Thanks-For-Giving . Given that it was made for television and that it was made decades after the classic Looney Tunes shorts, you can imagine that this is inferior stuff. Surprisingly, the animation is not terrible. Compared to a lot of other stuff from the same era, it's quite good. However, it's not the least bit funny. It's dialogue-heavy with no good gags. Mel Blanc does provide the voicework and that automatically makes this better than any of the Looney Tunes stuff that came out after he died. So, it's not as good as the original short it follows up on, but it is watchable. More forgiving fans will likely rate it higher. After all, it's still Chuck Jones, Michael Maltese, and Mel Blanc. That's nothing to sneeze at.
