How surprising, then, that this cute little comedy turns out to be charming and clever, not quite Roger Rabbit material but enjoyable nonetheless. The quirky and inventive screenplay has Daffy Duck being fired off the lot after a new efficiency-expert comedy producer () decides that he is old news and it’s all about Bugs. Meanwhile, Daffy gets involved in a secret spy mission with a studio security guard (Fraser), whose father () plays a Bond-like character in the movies and turns out to really be a Bond-like spy in real life.  All your favourite Looney Tunes characters makes cameos, including , plus there are some appearances from the great science-fiction films of the past: look for of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and the appearance of Robby The Robot from Forbidden Planet.
