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.

My Favorite Horse In A Cartoon!
13 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A "wanted poster" on a cactus sets up this story: the big bad wolf is wanted and the reward is $5,000, which would be untold thousands today. We then see the notorious bandit - and his horse who also is wearing a mask! - hold up a stage. Unfortunately, it turns out to be only the "Good Rumor Man" (they love puns in these cartoons) stagecoach, carrying ice cream. The bandit - and the horse - ask for "Neapolitan" and "Tutti Fruitti," respectively.

It's this kind of insanity that makes me love these Tex Avery Droopy cartoons. They are so full of great dialog in addition to the sight gags that I constantly laugh throughout most of them. The absurdity of a horse asking for a tutti-fruitti ice cream bar is just one example.

Of course, you know who is going to catch this bandit: little Droopy, with a cowboy hat on that is bigger than him. The action will take place at the "Rigor Mortis Saloon" where customers are invited to "come in and get stiff." Ouch!!

As with the "Dan McGoo" cartoon, we get the beautiful woman singing a song on stage and the wolf's eyeballs flying out but that part is very short. The chase begins when this varmint grabs that sexy singer and rides off with her out of the saloon. A posse is quickly formed and we a corny horse race....but you know who will win this "race" to get the villain.

My favorite character in this story was the bandit's horse, who was really funny. All in all, more good silly, corny animated fun....and another great restoration job on this Droopy "Complete Theatrical Collection" DVD. The colors in here look fantastic. For fans of this cartoon, I highly recommend this DVD.
