Don't be fooled by the title - Droopy looks like Droopy, but he's actually jazzman John Pettibone, with his performing flea combo, and the film shows how it came into being.

Derivative...but still entertaining
7 November 2002 | by (Milwaukee WI USA) – See all my reviews

With few changes, this is basically a remake of Friz Freling's Streamlined Greta Green (1937). The juvenile car chooses the wrong career, gets tanked (literally and figuratively) on premium and races a train, only to end up in a car hospital after a bad crash, followed by reconciliation. Avery reprised with Little Johnny Jet (1953), with the baby born a jet rather than choosing jethood (jetdom?).
