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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Tex Avery strikes again!
2 November 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery's most successful original continuing character was Droopy. Though Avery was involved in the development of many of Warner Brothers principal characters, most of the time he preferred doing one-shots, not wanting to be tied into a regular character continuously. Under pressure at MGM to develop a continuing series like the rival unit Hanna and Barbera had with Tom and Jerry, he tried with Screwy Squirrel and the characters George and Junior, which had short runs, then came up with Droopy and hit a small jackpot. Droopy was the perfect character for Avery-a quiet, nondescript little fellow who always seems to come out ahead. The series was loose enough to permit Avery to do the sight gags he loved but also had a character recognizable enough to audiences that he could be a hook to grab audiences and build in popularity, thus keeping the studio and Avery reasonably happy. MGM continued the series, with mixed results, after Avery left the studio. This particular short has loads of hilarious sight gags and the ending is hilarious. Well worth watching. Most recommended.
