Halloween Retro RePost: Daffy Duck's Quackbusters

Growing up in the late 80s, I was a big fan of The Real Ghostbusters cartoon.  Even earlier than that, I was a giant fan of the Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie to the point my parents (at my insistence) bought me a rubber carrot dog toy to play with, so I could be just like Bugs Bunny.  I was probably 4 or 5 at the time.

Knowing I was a big fan of both, one day, my Mom brought home a video from the town library that combined the two:  Daffy Duck's Quackbusters!  

Daffy Duck's Quackbusters is a 1988 Looney Tunes compilation movie starring Daffy Duck and other classic Looney Tunes characters.  In the 80s, Warner Bros. was combining newly-animated footage and linking them with classic Warner Bros. cartoons to make one longer movie, such as "The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie" and "Daffy Duck's Fantastic Island."  Quackbusters was the last in the compilation series and the final theatrical release until "Space Jam" almost a decade later.  

It was also Mel Blanc's next-to-last performance in a Looney Tunes project before his passing.

As a fun stroll down memory lane for our Friday Halloween Repost, I thought you might enjoy reading about Daffy and the Quackbusters from 1988!
