The Vanishing Duck (1958)

The Vanishing Duck ReviewThe Vanishing Duck Review

 The Vanishing Duck is a 1958 animated short that is the 115th Tom and Jerry cartoon. It is pretty good as the last Quacker outing.

Yes, this is one of the last Tom and Jerry cartoons and the final one featuring the little duckling. And although I had some problems with it, it is definitely pretty good. One of the problems is its familiarity as invisibility is hardly a new thing for this series. And another problem is that the film was way too talkative in my opinion.

But other than that, the characters of Quacker and Tom make this cartoon as Jerry is forgettable. Tom is so funny and I loved that he came victorious at the end. But Quacker’s talk does produce many laughs and he truly is such a lovable creation and one of the most successful supporting characters in the series. This entry is also pretty good in action and that tail trick sequence is just amazing, so inventive and one of my favorite moments ever in Tom and Jerry.

The Vanishing Duck is familiar, but so well executed with many memorable moments and an excellent use of Quacker and Tom.

 My Rating – 4.1
