Movie Info

Daffy Duck faces a rather bizarre adversary in this classic Merrie Melodies short, which pits Daffy against a mischievous off-screen animator, who is constantly altering and even sabotaging the cartoon. The trouble begins when, during a Three Musketeers parody, Daffy suddenly notices the background has disappeared, leaving only empty space.

All Critics (1)

Daffy's existential crisis is oddly revealing of his identity and, for the viewer, a lesson in the possibilities of the medium.

Audience Reviews for Duck Amuck

I've always preferred Daffy Duck to Bugs whether I'd prefer Daffy or Donald...that is a stickier issue. But in Warner cartoons, I've always felt Daffy was the funnier character. Duck Amuck features Daffy being tormented by the animator himself, who turns out to be Bugs in the end. It is a historically significant animation, but more importantly it is just a funny short cartoon.
