Love animation, it was a big part of my life as a child, particularly Disney, Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, and still love it whether it's film, television or cartoons.
Also have much admiration for Tex Avery, an animation genius whose best cartoons are animated masterpieces and some of the best he ever did. Generally like the Droopy cartoons and the character himself a lot, his best cartoons are classics and among Avery's best. Both are true for 'The Three Little Pups', one of many variations of the old 'The Three Little Pigs' story but one of the best, funniest and most imaginative along with Friz Freleng's 'The Three Little Bops' from 1957.
Droopy, as usual, is so well established in personality and is high on the humour and charisma scale. Stealing the cartoon from under him is the uproariously funny but also subtly menacing dog catcher, up there as one of the best adversaries in a Droopy cartoon.
Typically, Avery (returning after Dick Lundy did a surprisingly good job with the still very good 'Caballero Droopy', that just suffered from inevitable comparison to the previous Avery cartoons so lacked the unique wildness and wackiness, while still being very well made and funny) does a wonderful job directing, with his unique, unlike-any-other visual and characteristic and incredibly distinctive wacky humour style all over it as can be expected.
Once again there is nothing sadistic or repetitious, instead it's imaginative and hilarious (especially that razor sharp in wit dialogue). It is no surprise either that the animation is superb. The character designs are unique, Avery always did have creative character designs, and suitably fluid. The music, courtesy of Scott Bradley, is lushly and cleverly orchestrated, with lively and energetic rhythms and fits very well indeed.
Can never fault the voice acting in the Droopy cartoons, and Daws Butler particularly excels.
Summing up, wonderful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
