Daffy Duck returns to the spotlight once more to guide us through further episodes of cartoon comedy brilliance in this send-up of the feature film "Ghostbusters." After he inherits a million dollars from the estate of J.B. Cubish, Daffy and his pals Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig open up a ghost-busting service to stop Cubish's ghost from reclaiming the money. Included is "The Duxorcist," the classic parody of "The Exorcist."]]>

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 Abominable Snow Rabbit
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.Read more ›
Daffy, Porky, and Bugs are billed as "Paranormalists at Large". Throughout the film a spoof commercial pops up promoting their ghost hunting business. Part of the commercial includes a now-popular phrase among Looney Tunes fans where Daffy explains the objectives of their business and tells potential clients something like: "spooks spooked, goblins gobbled, ufo's k.o'd, aliens alienated, and monsters remonstrated.". One of the memorable aspects of the film was how effortlessly the classic clips blended together. This wasn't the first time clip-filled animated films had been released by Warner Brothers but it was the first, to my knowledge, where two relatively new theatrical cartoons had been responsible for the commission of a full-length movie release.
And so...in between the classic clips we see new animation of Bugs, Daffy, and Porky bridging the clips along. We'll see the hilarious "but I did see an elephant in my bird bath" clip and pieces of Porky and Sylvester's adventures when Sylvester was cast as a cowardly feline and Porky was his annoyed owner. The 1987 clip of "The Duxorcist" is hilarious...particularly for those familiar with what it's spoofing, The Exorcist.Read more ›
