Funniest cartoon of all time!
19 March 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every time I see this cartoon I laugh until it hurts. Two villains are trying to steal a safe, but they can't wake up the sheriff. Droopy gives the bad guys hell like he always does. Droopy keeps inflicting them with pain and they have to constantly run up a mountain to scream so the sheriff wont hear them. The best part is when they swap heads because one of the villains stepped in glue. Try to catch this one on the Tex Avery Show on Cartoon Network sometime.
