Though he might look a tad different, he's pure Droopy
This is the first Droopy cartoon, though he was referred to as 'Happy Hound' and he looks slightly different. However, his voice is Droopy (Bill Thompson) and the film is pure Droopy in style. If you get the 2-disk DVD set, it naturally is the first film in the collection.
The short begins with the wolf escaping from prison. Soon after, the dogs are released to look for him. However, the entire episode consists of Droopy in particular chasing the wolf--and magically appearing where ever the wolf goes. Many of the gags are exactly the sort of thing you'd expect from Tex Avery and the silly way the cartoon pokes fun of the genre makes it a great cartoon. So, despite the Droop-meister not being exactly what you'd expect, it's great. Well written and wonderfully animated.
