Storyline

Droopy and Spike find themselves in a Boy Scout competition, with the first prize being a handshake with the President. As usual, Droopy tries to win in a fair and sportsman-like manner, while Spike pulls every dirty trick in the book. These dirty tricks, however, seem to have a nasty habit of back-firing.

Another Avery classic!
23 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Droopy's Good Deed" was one of the last cartoons Avery produced for MGM back in 1950 (released in 1951) before going on a self-imposed sabbatical from the MGM cartoon dept. In this outing, Spike the vagrant comes across a boy scout camp when he is booted off a freight train. A competition is underway between Droopy and another scout for Best Scout. The prize? A trip to Washington to meet with the President! Spike sees this as his opportunity and takes the other scout's place. The remainder of the cartoon is a smattering of quick black-out gags as Spike does his best to eliminate his competitor, Droopy.

Beware of current prints circulating on video and on TV - 2 very un-PC racial gags have been excised from the cartoon. While one gag (the aftermath of Spike being struck by lightning) is uncensored on the video release, the other gag (the end result of a bomb with Spike and a refined gentleman) is still edited. If one wishes to see the complete cartoon, I suggest they seek out a copy from a private collector (my print is uncut).
