this might get me interested in Droopy
23 May 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

First, I should identify that while I know who Droopy is, I don't really know his cartoons. I think that I saw some of them when I was really young, but I didn't take to them (I best remember him from his appearance in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"). Well, "Dixieland Droopy" just might get me interested in his cartoons. It portrays the deadpan dog as a jazz fan who annoys everyone with his record, until finally the record breaks. But when he comes across some be-bop fleas, things change.

The whole chase scene is a real hoot, although I get the feeling that they may have been aping a Sylvester-Tweety or Wile E. Coyote-Road Runner pursuit. Still, this is a pretty enjoyable cartoon. It appears that Tex Avery made some interesting stuff after he left Termite Terrace (that was where they made the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons).
