This entire collection is not "essential" if you own any of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection and/or superstar DVD's. I saw the contents for the upcoming release and it is as follows.

Disc 1

Porky's Duck hunt (DVD Debut)

Daffy Duck & Egghead (seen on LTGC volume 3)

The Daffy Doc (LTGC volume 5)

Plane Daffy (LTGC Volume 4)

The Great Piggy Bank Robbery (LTGC volume 2)

Nasty Quacks (seen on Frustrated Fowl)

Book Revue (LTGC volume 2)

Duck Amuck (LTGC volume 1)

Duck Dodgers in the 24th and a half Century (volume 1)

The Scarlet Pumpernickel (volume 1)

My Little Duckaroo (volume 6)

A Star is Bored (volume 5)

Deduce you say (volume 1)

Ali Baba Bunny (volume 6)

Robin Hood Daffy (volume 3)

Disc 2

The Duxorcist & Night of the Living Duck both previously on the Space Jam DVD

The only new to DVD cartoons are Porky's Duck Hunt as I previously mentioned, Duck Dodgers Jr which was a segment on the Tiny Toons TV series, superior duck, the 2003 short Attack of the Drones, and from the Duck Dodgers TV series, The green loontern. Not recommend unless you don't own the other DVD's from where these cartoons were previously seen.

Essential Daffy Duck is a good collection of classic Daffy Duck cartoons. I love Robin Hood Daffy, Deduce, You say, Ali Baba Bunny and Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century. The second disc contains "newer" cartoons, dating from the 1980s; these are not ones I really appreciate. I would have been happier with more of the classic Warner Brothers cartoons of Daffy, that is why only 4 stars.

Ok, this DVD collection has taken a bit of flack for containing much previously released material, and I can understand why. Nobody likes to pay big bucks for stuff they've already dished out for. But if you look at this not as a Daffy Duck collection, but rather as a Duck Dodgers DVD set with plenty of Daffy bonus shorts, it suddenly becomes worth your hard earned dollars. Consider: not only do you get the original classic Duck Dodgers in the 24th & 1/2 Century but also Duck Dodgers in Attack of the Drones (a Star Wars parody), Duck Dodgers Jr. from Tiny Toons and the Green Loontern story from the sadly neglected Duck Dodgers TV series. And if that wasn't enough, they've included Daffy Duck's Thanks-for-Giving special, featuring the hard to find Duck Dodgers and the Return of the 24th & 1/2 Century. If you, like me are a fan of the Fowl of Tomorrow, this set is simply a must have. So claim this DVD in the name of the Earth already!

I really like this DVD. I like the old Warner Bros. cartoons a lot but I don't need to invest in the complete collection. The problem with this approach is that Daffy Duck isn't represented to the same extant as some of the other main characters. So, I have two of the "Collections" editions plus this one "Essential" collection.
I was prepared to be disappointed with the later, 80s vintage cartoons, but instead was pleasantly surprised. "The Duxorcist" is really quite funny and also kind of creepy all at the same time!
I recommend this DVD for those who aren't planning to buy all available Warner Bros. cartoon collections but who don't want to neglect a crucial character like Daffy.

There has been no question that the Looney Tunes gang has been one of the most influential and driven cast of characters of all time. From Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig, to Pepe Le Pew and Foghorn Leghorn, there is still so much joy nearly 80 years after Porky Pig came around, that still ignites so much influence and joy in the hearts of classic animation. But 2012 coming up proves to be something very extra special for Daffy Duck. It will be his 75th anniversary since he debuted in Porky's Duck Hunt in 1937. Honestly, he has been the little black duck that could, and delivered in so many great ways. Now a new DVD compilation is coming around to celebrate what has made Daffy Duck so important in the cartoon universe. But is this fully what makes Daffy Duck re-sparkle in a generation so fully focused on Spongebob Squarepants? Well, it is not looney enough.

The Essential Daffy Duck is a 2 disc DVD retrospective of Daffy Duck in his prime cuts in the classic Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes that he is best known for. From his days in famous gems like Porky's Duck Hunt, to his later Warner Brothers' era in the 50's being more associated as Bugs Bunny's sidekick in classic cartoons like A Star Is Bored, amd Ali Baba Bunny. But honestly, the second disc on the set shows Daffy trying his looniest in new generations including latter-day cartoons like Night Of The Living Duck and The Duxorcist from the Daffy Duck's Quackbusters, to The Green Loontern from the 2004-2005 overlooked cartoon series Duck Dodgers which the great Chuck Jones never got to see come around before he died in 2002.
