Daffy Duck's Fantastic Island (also known as Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island) is a 1983 Looney Tunes film with a compilation of classic Warner Bros. cartoon shorts and animated bridging sequences, hosted by Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales.This was the first Looney Tunes compilation film to center on Daffy Duck, as the previous ones had centered on Bugs Bunny.

A note in the end credits dedicates the film to animator and story man, John Dunn, "who inspired it."[1] Dunn died of heart failure in San Fernando, California on January 17, 1983; six months before the film's release. This film has not been released on DVD in North America yet.

Classic toons in order[edit]

  • Louvre Come Back to Me! (Pepe Le Pew's wish) (The Well: "I grant your wish to meet a girl of beauty unsurpassed, which, when compared with works of art, will leave the louvre outclassed.")
  • Curtain Razor (Porky Pig's wish) (The Well: "Discovering new talent for the world to see; a wondrous thing for a producer to be.")

Trivia[edit]

  • The original mid 80's VHS had its original soundtrack without any alterations. But current TV broadcasts uses a messed up audio on the cartoon's sountracks where it keeps echoing. As well as loud music in some scenes and cartoons (most notably on Stupor Duck) making it hard to hear what the characters are saying.
