The sight gags are great, but the dialogue steals the show!
This is a bit unusual for an Avery cartoon, in that the funniest bits are not the sight gags, but the dialogue, particularly the commentary done by the wolf, a recurring character in Droopy cartoons, very Southern and so laid-back you almost feel you need to check him for a pulse. His asides to the audience and his interactions with a bulldog are hysterically funny. The same wolf appears in Billy Boy and Blackboard Jumble as well, among others. One of the funniest foils Droopy had. Spike was just relatively stupid and very greedy, with limited comedic potential. The wolf here was smarter and offered more of a challenge. Also, pay attention to the names of the other two dogs in this with Droopy. Well worth the effort to get. Most highly recommended.
