During the 80s and early 90s, Warner Bros. produced a number of "clip-show“ movies, consisting of our favorite Looney Tunes facing new challenges, but the majority of the footage was taken from classic cartoons. Some of the others included "Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island", "The Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie", & "Bugs Bunny's Third Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales". However, this one tops them all as best, using the clips to their full potential.

The show starts with the cartoon "Daffy Dilly", in which Daffy is selling novelty gags on the side of the road and hears over the radio that ailing millionaire J.P Cubish will pay a fortune to anyone who can make him laugh one more time before he passes on. We watch the cartoon, which would normally end with Cubish throwing pies at Daffy, but the movie picks it right up, and shows that Daffy has inherited the bulk of Cubish's fortune (he died laughing). However, the will says Daffy must use the money to help the community and provide the service... yeah, right. After all, it's not like Cubish can take him with him, right?

Well, as Daffy finds out... he can. Cubish's ghost returns and starts to take the money, and every time Daffy starts acting up, more money disappears. Finally, the message sinks through and Daffy decides to open up a ghost-catching

business, ala Ghostbusters. He hires Porky (using the popular cartoon "The Prize Pest"), and Bugs, who only agrees when he hears of the travel opportunities ("You mean I get to go to Palm Springs?"). However, any time Daffy threatens to fire his staff or gets greedy, more money vanishes from his vault.

The movie uses some of the "creepiest" Looney Tunes cartoons ever created, including "Transylvania 6-5000", "The Abominable Snow Rabbit", "Scaredy Cat", "Hyde & Go Tweet", "The Duxorcist", and others. While it's great to see these classic cartoons, the real fun is watching Daffy try to keep his cool... and his money. Though some younger kids may get scared off whenever Cubish returns (everything goes dark, clap of thunder and lightning, and the music gets a little creepy), I highly recommend this cartoon for the whole family. Be sure to watch the opening cartoon of "Night of the Living Duck" for a real Halloween- themed treat.
