Storyline

Daffy Duck is a mild-mannered reporter with a secret identity in this parody of the "Superman" serials. Daffy, however, is his usual inept, overweening self, ramming into buildings and rescuing submarines and trains from a non-existant menace, a villain whose voice he heard on his editor's television program.

Daffy's wish
10 November 2006 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

I saw "Stupor Duck" in the compilation "Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island". When Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales - stranded on an uncharted island - find a wishing well, Daffy wishes to be Super Duck so that he can fly off the island. The only problem is, he gets turned into Stupor Duck, who bungles every mission...mainly due to the fact that his enemy doesn't even exist (he heard "Ratnik" on a TV show that the man in the next room was watching). So, he spends the cartoon getting himself into various and sundry embarrassing situations, all of which result in him getting maimed somehow. Anyway, this might not be the best cartoon that the crowd behind the Looney Tunes cartoons ever created, but it's great to watch just to see what happens to Daffy. Will he ever triumph?!

I agree: they need to find better places to put buildings.
