Trivia

There are ten dogs total (nine males & one female) and all are named at the introduction. The female, Cynthia, is no longer shown after the dogs' keeper mentions the prize of the catcher of the fox is a steak. See more »

Goofs

The fox gives Droopy a fake bone with a lit firecracker in it. The other dogs fight over it and one of the them puts the bone in his mouth. When Droopy asks them which one took his bone, the bone, which is in one of the stealing dog's mouths doesn't appear in the shape of a bone around his mouth until he shakes his head no and then, the firecracker explodes.

One of Tex Avery's better Droopy shorts
19 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is one of Tex Avery's Droopy cartoons and it is excellent. Droopy is okay, but the show is stolen by a fox with a very mannered nature, Ronald Colman sounding voice and speech pattern and entirely too clever for a bunch of incredibly over-matched hunting dogs! Given that my sympathies in such matters as hunts, bullfights and other "sports" which require needlessly killing something as the goal are with the stalked rather than the stalker, I rather like this short and consider the fox to be the lead character here, which I gather Tex Avery intended. Sight gags aplenty here, but much of what the fox says is rather dryly humourous as well. Sadly, this is not in print at present, but it's well worth seeking out. "I do this sort of thing all through the picture." has got to be one of Avery's favorite lines! Most recommended.
