Duck Dodgers is an American animated television series, based on the 1953 theatrical cartoon short “Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century”, produced by Warner Bros. Animation from 2003 to 2005. The series is comic science fiction, featuring the fictional Looney Tunes characters in metafictional roles, with Daffy Duck as the title character.

Why It Rocks

  1. This show is a perfect follow up to the 1953 cartoon of the same name.
  2. It features a cast of funny and likable characters.
  3. Duck Dodgers (Daffy), The Eager Young Space Cadet (Porky), and Martian Commander X-2 (Marvin) have received a lot of character development.
  4. Not only do Daffy, Porky, and Marvin appear on this show, other Looney Tunes characters such as Yosemite Sam, Elmer Fudd, Wile E. Coyote, Mac and Tosh, Taz, Witch Hazel, and several other characters appear on this show in their future forms.
  5. Great voice acting by Joe Alaskey, Bob Bergen, and many others.
  6. Really great theme song by Tom Jones and the Flaming Lips.
  7. A lot of funny and witty jokes.
  8. Awesome 2D and 3D animation.
  9. Great character designs.
  10. Funny pop cultural references, one of the most notable being "Samurai Quack", which is a parody of the Cartoon Network show; Samurai Jack.

Bad Qualities

  1. A few gross out moments every now and then.
  2. Daffy is now portrayed as a much bigger idiot on this show than he was before.
  3. It was cancelled to Loonatics UnleashedTTSW.

Trivia

  • Just like how The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries was dedicated to Friz Freleng, this show was dedicated to animation legend; Chuck Jones, who passed away a year before this show premiered.
