  • NO WAY! Duffy is a MASCOT character. He's cute and all, but he can't carry a whole film.

    Question Duffy's full-length animated feature?

    Would a movie be a good idea, or would we like to see him just as a park/mascot character? If there was gonna be a Duffy film, what would the story be? I think for an animated feature it would need a LOT more action than the current storybooks. Should Duffy talk in it? I'm pretty sure that's a given now, unfortunately.

    Let's use this thread to talk about story ideas, too!

    Mmmm, I don't think I would like a Duffy film. I mean the whole idea about Duffy is about having your own and making your own personality for him. Idk how that message could be translated into film without being uber cheezy and just lame. Idk, this is a tough one.

    I think if done right, it could work. However, the team involved would have to be very careful. This could not be a "throwaway" film at all. Also, it should not be anything like a Playhouse Disney/Disney Jr. type of movie AT ALL! I think they could possibly start with short films to test it out.

    I agree if it's done right it could work. I'd personally like to see some shorts starring Duffy. Those I feel would work much better from the get-go than a full-length feature.

    I don't think a duffy movie or cartoon would be good, to hear some celebrity give there voice to duffy when we all give our own voices to our own duffy's, imagine duffy having justin bieber's voice I would go and shoot myself

    Whatever happened to those hotel shorts we heard about around the start of the American relaunch?

    That's me, too. This is the biggest reason I CAN'T STAND My Friend Duffy. I hate Duffy's voice and excruciatingly childish characterization in that show. It totally doesn't fit with how I have always imagined (and continue to) this character as a fashion-conscious adventurer who understands universal love. The Duffy in MFD is just a silly, helpless fool. I understand that it targets children and families, but since it's mostly older "otaku" fans who built the foundation of the Duffy phenomenon, this in itself is a major problem for me. The Duffy show should have been intended to celebrate the character from a perspective that fans of all ages could appreciate. I can't imagine MFD Duffy running a cafe or delivering invites or sailing a ship or traveling through dreams or having his own adventures entirely independent of Mickey, all of which have been long established as pieces of the Duffy canon.

    I actually think they should avoid a film altogether, although a brief Toy Story cameo could make sense. If he does appear in an animation project, though, I think he should be SILENT. Keeping him silent allows alot more for the possibility that individual fans' images of the character remain intact, something one would hope the Company cares about.
