Did You Know?

Goofs

The disguised gold egg would be very easy to distinguish from ordinary eggs simply by its weight; it would not be necessary to break an egg to find out if it was the right one. See more »

The chemistry between Daffy and Sylvester make this fun to watch
26 December 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Not a patch on the Looney Tunes and all the characters here have been in much better cartoons. The Yolks on You is still quite good this said and is the best of the three cartoons that are part of Daffy Duck's Easter Special, the others are the decent if mediocre Daffy Flies North and the relatively lacklustre The Chocolate Chase(personal opinion of course). The story revolves mainly around Daffy and Sylvester and their attempts at getting a certain egg from one another, their antics are entertaining but the premise is rather predictable and not much different from other cartoons with a similar idea. Foghorn is fun and what makes him so endearing is here(he is important to the story too) but he doesn't have a huge amount to do, much of The Yolks on You bases on Daffy and Sylvester which makes Foghorn a little side-lined comparatively, though not bad enough to be a complete waste. The characters also could have done with more flow and finesse at times. Much of the animation is fine though, the backgrounds have signs of detail and fluidity and the vibrant(without falling into the too flat or too bright camps) colours are easy on the eye. The music is catchy and characterful as well as nicely orchestrated, not bombastic, not pedestrian and not too repetitive. It doesn't enhance the action as well as the Looney Tunes cartoons of the 40s-early 60s but it still serves The Yolks On You well. The dialogue is easy to understand and there is evidence of sharp wit(if not quite the freshness) and very funny stuff, it also has a good amount of flow. The gags, the best of them coming from Daffy, are well-timed and helped by the crisp pace and well matched visuals are very amusing and not less than that. The story is not much new but the pace is not bogged down as a result, there is a good amount of energy to The Yolk's On You. Daffy and Sylvester are charismatic and immensely entertaining to watch(their chemistry being the highlight), their verbal and physical sparring not wasting them for a second, it may make a little more sense though if Sylvester was partnered with Foghorn, at least it's nowhere near another Daffy and Speedy partnership. Most importantly both are true to what is so good about them as characters in the first place, Daffy is closer to the manic duck than the overly-greedy one(think of his outings with Speedy in regard to the latter, The Chocolate Chase also showed that side), here it is more a hybrid of both and it works. Mel Blanc brings all the characters but Prissy to life and does it brilliantly, the material is even funnier with his delivery. As Prissy Nancy Wible is no Bea Beanderet but does a worthy job still. Overall, a fun if slightly unexceptional cartoon. Of the special it is by far the best of the three cartoons featured and is actually better than most Looney Tunes of the late 60s. 7/10 Bethany Cox
