Fans of that crazy duck won't be upset - `I like him; he's silly'
Once upon a time a kind father gave his daughter a cute little duckling. The `cute little duckling' however, grew up to become the manic Daffy Duck who, after a while begins to grate on the nerves of the father.

In terms of plotting, jokes and routines, this cartoon isn't that good. However it is driven by the sheer manic energy of Daffy Duck - if you dislike his crazy period then you will simply hate this cartoon. I'm a big fan of Daffy when he is in his crazy period so I enjoyed this but even I couldn't overlook just how basic the plot is here. As a chase cartoon it works though and it is manically funny at times, but you need to be in the mood.

Daffy is as good as he ever is, at the dinner table telling crazy stories he is the truest I have seen him and he is just the way I love him! The father and daughter are a very far second in the cast list, although they do OK. This is a cartoon that is based totally on the fact that Daffy is intensely crazy and that that in itself is funny.

Overall I enjoyed this simply because I love Daffy in this role. However those who don't like that or are just untaken by him will probably struggle to enjoy this as much as I did.
