Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century

"A few minutes of outer space loonacy."
4 stars

"I claim this planet in the name of Mars! Isn't that lovely, hmmm?"

This is one of Chuck Jones' finest hours. (Or few minutes.)

Daffy Duck is Duck Dodgers, and Porky Pig (the ORIGINAL Pig In Space) is his trusty sidekick. They forge an expedition to Planet X, which just happens to be at the same time that Marvin the Martian and his dog are journeying there. Dodgers and Marvin claim the planet at the same time, and a little war ensues.

Looney Tunes' outer space ventures are some of their finest works; free of Earth's physics and biological certainties, the writers can let their imaginations run wild. And they certainly do here, especially with the weapons that Daffy and Ol' Cannonball Face use.

Let's hope the self-censors never get to this one... you never know who's gonna start harping about the dangers of a disintegrating beam.
