Storyline

In this feature-length film combining footage from classic Warner Brothers cartoon shorts with newly animated bridging sequences, Daffy Duck, after having induced laughter in an ailing millionaire and forestalled the millionaire's death for a time (as chronicled in Daffy Dilly (1948), is the beneficiary for the deceased millionaire's assets. But the millionaire's will clearly stipulates that Daffy must use the money for the common good, by providing a service, and should Daffy think of pursuing selfish aims, the millionaire's ghost will "repossess" his millions by making them disappear from Earthly existence. Under the pretense of community service, Daffy opens an exorcism agency and employs Porky Pig, Sylvester Cat, and Bugs Bunny to track and eliminate ghosts, ghouls, and other monsters, while Daffy secretly schemes to use his learned "ghost-busting" talents to rid himself of the millionaire's nagging spirit.

Quackbusters: A Gut-Busting Movie
8 November 2011 | by Virtual15See all my reviews

This is yet another old Looney Tunes classic that I have treasured for years and watch when I can. I'd really recommend it to Daffy Duck fans since the movie brings back some old throwback episodes with slight edits. You can clearly tell when the old scenes and the new scenes are meshing with one another due to the animation, but I wasn't too bothered by that.

Daffy is on his way to millionaire J.P. Cubish's house to try and make him laugh one last time. If he does so, Cubish will give him one million dollars. I'm not going to reveal anything else since that is not my style (it's also against the rules here to do so without putting up a warning, I believe), but you'll see for yourself how good the movie is if you watch it.
