A rarity....
24 April 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I am an enormous fan of animation and of the original Looney Tunes cartoons. In general cartoons of this last decade have been awful or shows that started off good but now mediocre. Duck Dodgers is a rarity, seriously while not the best animated show out there in the world it is light years away from being the worst. I'd rather watch Duck Dodgers than something like Pokemon or Shaggy and Scooby Doo:Get a Clue, the former had a great concept but the later episodes especially are really predictable and the less said about the latter the better.

Back to Duck Dodgers, the animation is lovely to look at, not slip shod or flat, but colourful, well drawn and fluid. The galactic backgrounds often look absolutely amazing especially. The music is also great, the theme tune is very catchy and memorable, and the writing is sharp, not as razor sharp as the original cartoons, but sharp and funny enough. Yes, it was funny, there are many episodes that have many hilarious visual gags and dialogue to delight not only kids but adults as well. The episode ideas don't feel contrived or slushy, a major plus in my book, they are just episodes that spring from a great concept and work above decently with well above average material. Also the voice acting do really well. I do miss Mel Blanc I admit, he immortalised the original cartoons and was just a phenomenal voice actor overall. That said, Joe Alaskey, Tia Carrere, Bob Bergen, Tara Strong and Grey DeLisle all do great jobs with their characters. Speaking of the characters, I always delight in Daffy Duck, he has a witty, outrageous and manic persona that makes him truly unique and he is on top form as an incompetent space captain. Porky as the cadet isn't given as much to do but he does well with what he has, and the Martian Queen is beautiful and somewhat sexy.

Overall, this is if given a chance, a great series. Not as good as the originals, which I admit I wasn't expecting, but it is for me one of the better animated shows of the last decade. 10/10 Bethany Cox
