'Daffy Duck's Quackbusters'
(DVD / NR / 2009 /Warner Home Video)
Overview: A ghost clown, a cursed mummy and a mysterious puppet master are some of the strange and spooky villains the Mystery Inc. gang encounters on 'Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! Vol. 3 Hello Mummy,' a collection of classic Scooby-Doo cartoons available on DVD September 1, 2009.
DVD Verdict: There is no doubt about the appeal that the Looney Tunes have had over the years. While they've brought so much in the way of influence from the greatness of Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig, to the wackniess of Daffy Duck, whom later felt more angered about being more like a second banana to Bugs, they sadly in this generation have been misbegotten in favor of others like Spongebob Squarepants and the new Penguins Of Madagascar.
Yet with all of that, Mel Blanc's influential voice and appeal has honestly been forgotten for what he had made as a take into the depths of great voiceovers and animation. That honestly has showed in his final role as a part of the Looney Tunes family.
The 1988 Looney Tunes feature Daffy Duck's Quackbusters is the final of the classic greats of the original Looney Tunes movies. The movie is finally available for the first time on DVD, and shows no sign of stopping the memory of the looniness. The movie highlights Daffy as a struggling salesman for jokes and gags, whom takes a opportunity to make a dying millionaire's last laughing days go out with a bang, in a news saying he would give $1 million to anyone who makes him laugh.
Daffy later on gets the inherited money, but is haunted by the ghost of the millionaire as a ghost, whom demands Daffy uses the money for good deeds. Daffy decides to make a ghost catching agency, who enlists Porky and Bugs, to help in his aid for catching the spirits. But later on loses his money to the ghost J. Q. Publish, bit by bit, while Daffy tries to make a quick buck while he can, to save the business. The cartoon movie has been remastered nicely, and definitely brings in a lot of laughs from the depths of humor from Jekyll & Hyde, to the haunting of Bugs going looney against of Count Blood Count, who wants Bugs for a quick bite.
While it is fun in all, it sadly doesn't score the joy Daffy brought in nicely from his other film Daffy Duck's Fantatic Island earlier from the 80's. Still it is a nice treat. [MK] This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs, but does not come with any Special Features.
