Trivia

Many other familiar characters from the Looney Tunes pantheon were featured on this show, often given traits to fit within Duck Dodgers' own universe. For example: Yosemite Sam became "K'chutha Sa'am", a parody of Klingons on Star Trek: The Original Series (1966). Elmer Fudd became a parasitic mind-altering alien disease known as "The Fudd", though more closely resembling The Borg in Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). Taz was a barbaric ship Captain forced into single combat with Dodgers (a parody of the Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) episode "Arena". Wile E. Coyote showed up as a Predator-like alien hunting the Martian Commander. See more »

I agree its not the best, but I think it's still good.
20 October 2003 | by SSJAniFanSee all my reviews

Okay, a few people have trashed this series, and a few others like it. I would head more towards the like side, I don't think it's the best show ever, but it's nice. Daffy, as usual, is the typical clueless, egotistical loveable moron who needs his sidekick(Porky)'s help in most cases. These try to add a science fiction-esque twist to the Looney Tunes characters. While I agree that the series is not as good as the original 50's short, I don't think the series is trying to take its place, and I think the creators know this. To try and take the place of Chuck Jones's original masterpiece would probably be impossible, and I believe that when this show was created the writers knew this, which is why it is quite different from the the original, and even its lackluster sequel. Still, it's way better than Powerpuff Girls(gag me).

BOTTOM LINE: Although I won't be frantically searching this show out, it is a nice way to kill half an hour if I happen upon it.
