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.

Delightful
26 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big animation fan, and I like Droopy a fair bit. Dixieland Droopy is one of his best, and also one of his most original and different. The animation is wonderful, very colourful in the colours, slick in the background art and all the characters are well drawn. The music is energetic, rousing and one of the biggest reasons why the cartoon works so well. Something special is made with the story too, it is very well paced without feeling rushed or short changed, is different in that it is based on a true story and the material that forms whether it's physically or verbally is both funny and original. The sound effects are also to be credited, they are authentic-sounding and don't sound out of place. Droopy is a sheer delight and voiced marvellously by Bill Thompson. Overall, Dixieland Droopy is delightful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
