Movie Info

Daffy Duck hosts this Fantasy Island spoof used basically as a frame to show ten Warner Brothers cartoons. Even though there's a good variety of characters in the cartoons--including episodes with Bugs, Sylvester & Tweety, Pepe le Pew, Foghorn Leghorn and the Tasmanian Devil--the selections are not among the best.more

Woo Hoo! Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales find a magical wishing well on a deserted island and set up their own "Fantastic Island", done in an homage to the 70's TV show "Fantasy Island", which people are probably forgetting existed, slimming the chance of this coming to DVD. (Speedy plays the Tattoo role!) Many Looney Tunes characters visit the island to have their fantasies come to life, including Yosemite Sam and Foghorn Leghorn; they employ clips from classic Looney Tunes shorts to realize some of the fantasies. The newly animated sequences are skillfully drawn to match the old clips. It's a good idea for a movie, but now dated. Note: this is a Daffy Duck movie, so there's no Bugs Bunny to be seen.

New animation and voice work edited into basically a clip show of classic Warner Bros. shorts. Fond memories from childhood. Doesn't seem fresh nor dated. Watchable.

The formulaic pattern for combining old shorts with new animation begins to wear somewhat thin in Daffy's first theatrical outing, in which he and Speedy Gonzales find themselves on a deserted island with a wishing well. The idea behind this film is to parody "Fantasy Island", but this aspect may be lost on unsuspecting viewers. That and the selection of the cartoons are uneven; some of them, like "Horatio Hareblower", "Stupor Duck", and "From Heir to Hare" are pricelessly hilarious, while others range from mediocre to forgettable. DAFFY DUCK'S FANTASTIC ISLAND is the weakest of the LOONEY TUNES compilated features, as it does tend to dry up more often than not. Still, there are some amusing moments: teaming Yosemite Sam (as a pirate) with the Tasmanian Devil works quite well, and the commentary of the wishing well transitioning into each "wish" via a cartoon feature is a hoot.
