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.
