Who Has More 'Strength And Daring?'
16 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This time we are at the circus, where they are advertising for "Dare Devil Dog Wanted: Must Be Fearless!"

Two guys applying for the job are our normal adversaries, Droopy and Spike. The boss says he will put it "on a competitive basis and the one who gives me the best performance in strength and daring gets the job!"

So, here we go again with a contest between the two and we get the same thing: great humor, tremendous sight gags and just a ton of laughs as these two compete in everything from a strongman contests to feats of courage, like driving autos into a brick wall, with Spike cheating in almost every event but coming out the worst for it. I loved Droopy on the flying trapeze.

This is yet one more strong entry from The "Tex Avery's Droopy - The Complete Theatrical Collection" DVD.
