| Nice twist on the classic story
First off, I will advise you not to expect high quality like any Rankin'/Bass special or How The Grinch Stole Christmas! but it is a decent effort. Of course it isn't as irreverent or as ingenious as the Looney Tunes cartoons that we all grew up with, and in some cases still love. And while the voice acting is good, particularly Joe Alasky in numerous roles such as Daffy, I don't think they quite have the energy that the immortal Mel Blanc(a major part of the success of the original cartoons) brought to the proceedings. It is also too short, so one or two of the jokes didn't work as well as it should. But overall, it is decent and well worth the watch. Despite the story being used countless times before(Muppets, Disney, Peter Pan and the Pirates, Scrooge(1951), Scrooged, the recent Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey etc.), and the danger of it being too clichéd, the story about Daffy being a Scrooge-like character and being visited by three spirits, is a nice if condensed twist on the timeless Dickens story. The animation is in general beautiful and traditional, the music is lovely and the writing is sharp. Plus while Bugs was badly underused, it was nice to see our favourite cartoons on screen again. There are some funny moments, Daffy being visited by Granny and Tweety was one of the funnier moments, particularly the image of Daffy getting hit on the head by a candy cane. Another hilarious part was anything to do with Yosemite Sam. And there are some poignant ones too, Porky with Prisilla certainly but I am principally talking about young Daffy in the orphanage and he says "I just want to have a family". All in all, decent effort but if you are looking for anything exactly like the original cartoons, you will be a tad disappointed. 7/10 because it was very enjoyable and was a nice twist on the classic story.
