Daffy Duck's Quackbusters (2009)

After the success of BUGS BUNNY SUPERSTAR, Warner Brothers cashed in on the theatrical re-issue popularity with movies made up of clips from classic WB cartoons bridged together by poorly drawn & scripted new animation.

Sadly, this would be Mel Blanc’s final work for Warner Brothers.

The story of Daffy Duck inheriting a haunted estate is told through clips from the following cartoons:

Daffy Dilly (not on DVD yet)

The Prize Pest

Water, Water Every Hare

Hide and Go Tweet

Claws For Alarm

The Duxorcist

Transylvania 6-5000

The Abominable Snow Rabbit

Punch Trunk

Jumpin’ Jupiter

Also included as a warm-up cartoon is Night Of The Living Duck.

Warner’s press release talks of the uniqueness of this movie, being constructed out of several unrelated vintage cartoon shorts.  Have they forgot about the other 4 movies?

The real reason for Looney Tunes fans to buy this DVD is the three complete bonus cartoons that are NEW TO DVD:

Duck Dodgers & The Return of the 24 1/2 Century (1980).

Not as satisfactory as the original. It was inteneded for theatrical release, but relegated to inclusion in a TV special after WB saw the final product.  Daffy reprises his role as Dodgers with Porky returning as his side-kick to try once again to save the Earth from Marvin Martian.

Superior Duck (1996) Daffy once again has super prowers, but this time it is not nearly as fun as the original “Super Duck”.  This time most of the Looney Tunes cast join him as well as the original Man Of Steel.

Little Go Beep (2000) An odd Road Runner & Coyote cartoon.  The Coyote’s Father (I suppose he had one) tells baby Wile E. Coyote not to speak until he catches a road runner.  I guess the Coyote was successful as he spoke to Bugs Bunny in the “Wile E. Coyote, Genius” cartoons.

O.K., my reviews of the bonus cartoons do not make a great sales pitch.  If you are looking for good laughs from classic Looney Tunes, I would suggest the Looney Tunes Golden Collections instead.  But if you want everything Looney Tunes, like me, then you will need to get this DVD.
