Storyline

Cupid (who looks suspiciously like Elmer Fudd) is on the prowl around the farm. With his ever-accurate arrows (which have their tips replaced with suction cups for safety's sake), he spreads love to sometimes unwilling recipients. But when he sets his sights on Daffy, the duck wants no part of it. When Elm...erm...Cupid fires the largest arrow at his disposal at the hapless duck, Daffy falls for the nearest hen...who happens to be the main squeeze of the cock of the walk... Written by Jason A. Cormier

Quotes

Daffy Duck: Say, keep your arrows out of other people's businessesses... buster! You shot me last year, and look what happened. Tied down. No more fun. Now look at me. A has-been. A hen-pecked duck. A canvasback Cassanova. And it's your fault, you bare-backed bandit. So beat it, bub. Take a powder. Scram!

Elmer Fudd as The Stupid Cupid? Well, I guess that makes sense!
8 July 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed The Stupid Cupid. Admittedly it is a little on the bizarre side, but it is quite funny as well. The cartoon does start off a little slow, but there is a lot that more than makes up for it. The story is simple but fairly effective. The animation is very nice, with lovely colours and good character features. The music is my favourite asset though, it was put to perfect use and quite pleasant and quirky to listen to. The dialogue particularly that of Daffy's is funny, while there are some interesting sight gags such as the cat shooting herself and we see her shooting each of her nine lives and Daffy falling in love with a chicken. Elmer's facial expressions were pretty funny too. Elmer is still dim-witted and clueless, and while he looks and sounds different(being voiced by Mel Blanc rather than Arthur Q. Bryan) he is a good foil, while Daffy is lots of fun as always.

Overall, an enjoyable cartoon, not perfect but worth watching. 9/10 Bethany Cox
