I really enjoyed this animated series that aired on the Cartoon Network years ago. At the time of its initial showing, Duck Dodgers wasn't really treated very well, with CN premiering episodes all over the schedule, which can really hurt a program if the viewers can't find it.

Duck Dodgers is a combination of Chuck Jones classic cartoon short that combined Daffy Duck with the world of fifties sci-fi fantasy, and combines it with recent takes on Star Trek, Star Wars, and even the Six Million Dollar Man.

As a fan of the original cartoon, I must say this series continues the proud tradition as Porky (Eager Young Space Cadet) and Duck Dodgers have it out against the the infamous Marvin the Martian and his newly introduced queen (voiced by Tia Carrera).

The special effects and the spaceship fights are top notch, easily rivaling those of Futurama, and in my opinion even better. For those of you who do pick up these DVD's, check out the space battles and take notes.

I'm looking forward to the second volume of this series, which includes the episode, "The Fudd," a bitter enemy of Duck Dodgers which combines elements of the Star Trek:Next Generation's The Borg and Elmer Fudd. A truly terrifying combination. This tale is so funny that I plan to purchase this DVD just to show a friend this horrifying tale. Will Duck Dodgers and his Eager Young Space Cadet survive an outer space threat which converts its victims into Elmer Fudd-like beings?

Looking forward to this release and the third and final release of Duck Dodgers.

Sincerely,

JThree

In my opinion, Duck Dodgers was a great cartoon that ended too soon. Maybe there is a chance that more episodes will be made one day as cartoons today sometimes do return.

The episode Pig Planet centers around Cadet telling his niece and nephews a story to keep them entertained and to prevent them from destroying the ship and angering Duck Dodgers any further. The Cadets niece and nephews are voiced by Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell, and Tress MacNeille in which they used their Yakko, Wakko, and Dot voices (Animaniacs) respectively as a tribute.

Paul Dini is favorite animation author of mine and he is wonderful at writing this very funny show. Thanks for making Daffy Duck funny again.

I loved the second season of Duck Dodgers. It has all our returning favorites, and some great new gags.

The quality is excellent, and the case is well-made.

I just hope they complete the set with Season 3 soon!

(extra: The episode "Pig Planet" features the voices (& attitudes) of the Animaniacs as The Cadet's niece and nephews - fun stuff!)

As "J. Smith's" review on "Duck Dodgers: Deep Space Duck Season Two" echoes
my sentiments entirely, there's nothing that I can add.

However I can say to you...

Resistance is futile (Sorry, Borg!!) You are compelled to...

1. See my review on "Duck Dodgers: Dark Side of the Duck - Season 1..."

2. Purchase "Duck Dodgers: Dark Side of the Duck - Season 1..."

3. (For more of a good thing...) Purchase "Duck Dodgers: Deep Space Duck Season Two"

4. Enjoy!

You cannot resist...I know I can't!

I rate "Duck Dodgers: Deep Space Duck Season Two"...Five stars!

I have been a classic Warner Bros cartoon fan for many years, going back to the 1950s; tells you how old I am. I can remember seeing a classic
cartoon called Rabbit Hood in the late 1940s, one of chuck Jones best. Anyway I have reviewed some of the toons on this disc but not all because
I have seen them all many times. I was waiting for ever for WB to release these for viewers like myself: I love classic line drawn animation with
the classic characters that today are as funny as they were in the 1940s. Today much of the television and theatrical animation is computer drawn;
some good such as Shrek and Polar Express, others stink. This is a return to classic drawings though some is done overseas; better than not having
any at all. I feared the studio would bring back the nasty Daffy of the mid to late 1950s but no, they returned more or less to the wacky Duck and
his pig friend. These cartoons for the most part are very funny, have some adult style humor in them (which I like) and have a broad appeal in my
opinion. There are a few duds but for the 99 percent they are great. Much satire poking fun at star trek, star wars and other classic shows. I
of course purchased the first two seasons from AMAZON where I get ALL my DVDs. Video is excellent. Occasionally other characters make cameo appearances such as Elmer Fudd, voiced by no other than the voice of Billy West the voice of Fry on Futurama. At least I am pretty sure he is. West
is a terrific voice man as good as any I heard. Also a sort of Klingon style of Yosemite Sam makes an appearance. There also is a satire of the
Iron Giant in one of the seasons, the best theatrical animated film I ever saw of the classic mode. If you like classic style of animation along
with old style Daffy humor with some current updates, you should enjoy these cartoons along with any kids you might have. Enjoy!

I gave the season to my boyfriend as a christmas present, only to find when he later opened the plastic that there was a big cut directly through the cover and the plastic casing itself; not a kind of cut that could be done accidentally, but intentionally with a knife. The cut was covered up by a big white sticker on the plastic wrap so I wouldn't see it before it was opened.

My favourite episode of "Duck Dodgers" is from Season Two. It is the "Samurai Jack" parody. It's very funny and well done, up to the parodic standards of the classic WB cartoons. WB has done a good job living up to its standards when instead of trying to reproduce the original cartoons with the original talent, they have stayed true to the recipe of 1) topicality; 2) good writing; 3) good plotting and 4) cheeky but kindly parody and light satire of pop culture and music. They no longer sell sheet-music but they can still do a great job on comedy and parody with just a bit of satiric edge where appropriate. These cartoons can entertain adults as well as younger viewers as, like all good writing and cartooning for children, they operate on several levels so all ages can enjoy them together.
