Storyline

The Wolf rides into town, terrorises it, kidnaps the girl, and is chased by the outraged townspeople, accompanied by Droopy, who despite introducing himself as "the hero" at the end, in fact barely features in this one - but connoisseurs of Tex Avery wolves will have a field day.

Masterful use of the character of Droopy and the running gag.
24 November 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

As the creator of the character, it's understandable that Tex Avery would be best able to utilize him to best effect. Most of the Droopy shorts made after Tex left MGM don't really use the character as effectively, giving him too much dialogue or making him to soft-hearted and without an edge to him. Droopy has teeth and can use them. But, really, what Droopy is, and probably intended to be all along, is a simple character to react to things and bounce things off of, a sort of subtle focus point the audience can be drawn to and relate to, but who doesn't distract from the sight gags.

Watch for Droopy's appearances in this one-he pops up unexpectedly in some amusing places. There's also a great running gag here that may well be his best running gag, certainly the best Avery used while at MGM (the one at the core of The Legend of Rockabye Point may be better, but I love that cartoon so much, I could be biased in its favor) and running gags were a staple in Avery cartoons. Most of them had at least one. Good cartoon and the ending is great. Well worth watching. Recommended.
