Storyline

Duffy Duck, who's clearly playing his famous Duck Dodgers character, is trying to show his superior heroic skills and powers, but the Narrator just can't seem to come up with the right comparisons for his awesome abilities, which annoys Daffy to no end. Other skeptical characters such as Taz and Foghorn Leghorn sabotage him further. Finally, the big S himself throws in his two cents on Daffy's showing-off. Duck Dodger's faithful and smarter sidekick, The Eager Young Space Cadet, played as usual by Porky Pig, cameos.

Retread, worth seeing only for completists.
2 August 2015 | by newtype_1See all my reviews

I must be the only one who didn't like this. I saw this as part of Boomerang's Looney Tunes block and was excited at the prospect of a Chuck Jones I hadn't seen before. This very late cartoon from him though is full of painfully stale bits lifted from earlier cartoons.

The plot is purportedly about Daffy as a superhero, but it quickly derails into "Duck Amuck" territory. It feels like a sloppy effort here, with pretty much every other Looney Toon other than Bugs making a gratuitous cameo.

A never-before-seen Looney Tunes short is always something of a treat, but I was disappointed in this one. I still rate it a 4 out of 10 for even existing.
