History of Dinky Duck
History of Dinky Duck:
One of the
finest creations Terrytoons ever
produced! This cute little black duck was a joy to see in
cartoons. Just harmless fun! Most of the times, the
cartoons were about the little guy winning in the face of adversity,
usually against much bigger aggressors.
The Orphan Duck
Much Ado About Nothing (1940) *
The Lucky Duck (1940) *
Welcome Little Stranger (1941)
Life With Fido (1942) *
Dinky Finds a Home (1946)-
The Beauty Shop (1950)- *DINKY
QUACKS! A buzzard abducts all the hens and rooster, so Dinky
turns into a wild duck and kicks some tail! Another really,
really great Dinky cartoon!
Flat Foot Fledgling (1952)-
Foolish Duckling (1952)- *
Sink or Swim (1952)- *
Wise Quacks (1953)- *DINKY
QUACKS, THEN TALKS, THEN QUACKS AGAIN! Dinky wants to be a
singer, but ducks can only quack. A magical fairy grants him his
wish to talk. Dinky becomes a sensational singer, but gets
kidnapped by a fox and forced to sing in a cage. The fairy grants
Dinky's wish to quack again and he returns to his life in the
barnyard. We see Dinky's mother in this one, and she's cute!
Featherweight Champ (1953)-
The Orphan Egg (1953)- *DINKY
TALKS! One of my top favorite Dinky cartoons! Dinky finds
an egg and takes care of the hatchling, despite the other barn animals
bad remarks. It grows up to be a bald eagle and defends the
barnyard from a hungry fox!
The Timid Scarecrow (1953)-
*DINKY TALKS! I like it, but the scarecrow is a little
creepy. Dinky helps his scarecrow friend keep his job by fighting
off the pesky little crows.
It's a Living (1957)- *DINKY
TALKS! I don't like this one. The animation is creepy and
the fact that Dinky is in it is the cartoon's only saving grace.
