Storyline

Daffy's reading a scary comic book. The story ends in a cliffhanger, and Daffy rifles his bookcase looking for the next issue. A clock falls, and beans Daffy, making him think he's the featured act in a nightclub. All the customers at the nightclub are classic movie monsters. Fortunately, there was a bottle of "Eau de Tormé" in Daffy's dressing room, which makes him sing like Mel Tormé. He sings "Monsters Lead Such Interesting Lives" to the room, and they love it. Then he goes around the room, greeting the patrons, but his good-natured ribbing of "Smogzilla" doesn't go over well with the giant lizard, who eats Daffy. Daffy wakes up, to find himself stuck in a wastebasket, along with the comic he was looking for, with "Smogzilla" on the cover. Daffy scoffs, and the cover comes to life, saying, "You were expecting maybe Calvin Coolidge?" Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The end of Mel Blanc.
10 November 2006 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

So, Mel Blanc lent his voice to a cartoon short for the last time. It was an OK effort. Maybe not quite like their work from the '40s and '50s, but a colorful jab at classic horror flicks, as Daffy Duck dreams that he's performing for an audience of monsters...until he antagonizes Godzilla. And with another Mel (Torme, that is) doing the singing, how can you go wrong? All in all, "The Night of the Living Duck" was a worthy end for The Man of 1,000 Voices. And he left this life the very next year (he was actually the first famous person whose death I was aware of; I was only five years old, but I knew the names of Bugs Bunny's creators). You can luxuriate in Mel Blanc's voices and Carl Stalling's music (happy birthday, Carl!).
