Storyline

Droopy and Spike find themselves competing in a series of athletic events. As always, Droopy plays fair and square, while Spike tries to cheat every chance he gets. And as always, every scheme Spike sets out ends up blowing up in his face, while Droopy, blissfully unaware of it all, marches on to victory in every event.

Sight gags all through this one and very funny ones too
17 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short, as is usually the case with a Droopy directed by Tex Avery, is heavy with sight gags (the ones with another director, particularly by Dick Lundy, were more driven by dialogue than Avery's were), although dialogue is more in evidence here than is normal in a Tex Avery short. Generally speaking, in an Avery short, if there is more verbal humor, it's either narration or one character dominates conversations and/or talks to the audience. This cartoon brings home the old saying, "Be careful what you ask for, you might get it." The ending is great! Good to see it's in print. Recommended.
