Excellent example of a Tex Avery Droopy
27 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short is an excellent example of Tex Avery's handling of Droopy: Droopy is very quiet, passive and sedate (almost sedated, actually) as Spike tries to win a job competition through ways nefarious that never work out as intended. Droopy is just there to provide something to set up the sight gags. You still can't help but like him (I can't, anyway) because he's Everyman (or should that be Everydog?) and he generally comes out on top. Good to see it's in print. Well worth seeing. Recommended.
