Audience Reviews for Duck Amuck
The fourth wall has been obliterated! This trope has been used and reused so much that it's easy to forget where it all started and how incredibly creative Duck Amuck really is.
Breaking the fourth wall, Daffy Duck is assailed by the pranks of an omniscient and mean-spirited animator in this beloved short. The standard set by director Chuck Jones and writer Michael Maltese is quite high, but they greatly outdid themselves here. Duck Amuck is as creative and innovative as it is funny.
I've always preferred Daffy Duck to Bugs Bunny...now 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.
