Hey, now, wait a minute, shorty! You've been dogging me all through this picture. Just who the heck are you, anyway?
Why, haven't you heard? I'm the hero.

Considering that this film was directed by Tex Avery and stars Droopy, you know that you're in for a good time! It begins with a nasty wolf riding his horse into a western town. Soon, he becomes enamored with a singing beauty (who looks much like a western version of Swingshift Cinderalla from an earlier Avery cartoon) and kidnaps her. What follows is an insane Avery sort of chase--complete with elevators and other wackiness. Ultimately, our hero is able to save the day and get the girl.
As you'd expect from the Tex Avery cartoons that he made for MGM, this one has terrific animation, lots of wonderful gags and a weirdness that makes you shake your head and wonder what was wrong with that guy! Funny and well worth your time.
