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.

One of the best Droopy's and a somewhat atypical Tex Avery cartoon
15 August 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short by Avery is somewhat different from his normal approach of firing as many sight gags at the audience as possible as rapidly as possible. There is actually something of a story here and the jokes principally flow from the premise of a dog who loves Dixieland jazz. There are some beautiful scenes hee and the connection of music and animation is great, particularly in one portion of a chase sequence! Most recommended
