'Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl'
(Mel Blanc, Arthur Q. Bryan, Robert C. Bruce, Daws Butler, June Foray, et al / DVD / NR / 2010 / Warner Home Video)
Overview: The good times roll with Looney Tunes Super Stars: Daffy Duck Frustrated Fowl. This DVD is entirely devoted to that smart-aleck duck. Fifteen theatrical shorts are featured on this side-splitting compilation.
DVD Verdict: 'Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl', as part of the new Looney Tunes Superstars series, is a great supplement addition for those who've already own all 6 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection volumes. The DVD features 15 classics from Daffy that have never made it to DVD, and some have never made it to video period. The collection of greats also have been remastered well (this time is the letterbox format and not the standard format like before.)
Still, the collection of cartoons is well including classics like This Is A Life? where Daffy is angry over Bugs being celebrated, over thinking the show was going to focus on a tribute to him, yet Bugs is honored by Yosemite Sam and Elmer Fudd, through some of their harshest moments, and Daffy's Inn Trouble, where Daffy leaves a Inn he works for by Porky, after being fed up with just being told to sweep all the time (and a new broom he gets as a present, rather than just recognition) and builds his own Inn with some heartbreaks beared inn, and Wise Quackers by Friz Freleng one of Daffy's often overlooked gems.
In that one Daffy falls from the sky, after being overexhausted from flying, and falls into a trap by Elmer Fudd, only to talk himself out of it by being Elmer's slave. The shorts really look great and sound just like they did when they came out in the 40's, 50's and 60's.
All in all, 'Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl' is a nice buy for any hard core fan of the Looney cartoons for all these great years. While it isn't going to appeal to those who've never seen any of the shorts from the Looney Tunes gang, it definitely will appeal to those who've wanted more from the Looney Tunes on DVD, and were just hoping there was more to deliver.
I absolutely recommend this for anyone for has been a fan of Daffy for all this time, and still remains one fanatic of the old Looney Tunes gang. Daffy has always been looney, and it is easy to forget what made him stand out in the crowd, but he always wanted the credit for it too. I really love watching these gems and Daffy is one Looney delight. [MK] This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
