Trivia

While the voice of Droopy was usually provided by Bill Thompson, he did not do so for this cartoon, he did Tex Avery a favor, letting him have the role. Being Tex Avery's final cartoon highlighting Droopy Dog, The first of two he co-directed, along with Michael Lah, as he was in process of returning to Lantz Studios, where his animation career started) the voice heard is strongly believed to be Tex Avery's. Plus, Droopy Dog spoke only three short lines, in it. See more »

Time-honored and well-tested conceit.
10 November 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery used a plot device here that he used in several cartoons: A character or characters want to avoid being heard by another character. Another character does their level best to cause them to disturb the character, setting the stage for his much-beloved sight gags fired rapidly at the audience. Cartoons are an artform and animated shorts have differing limitations and requirements from longer works. Conventions, plot devices and gimmicks have been developed over the years. Tex Avery developed and/or refined many of these over the years and is, in my view, the most seminal creative force in the history of the animated short. He was an extraordinary artist. This is a funny, engaging, delightful short with a hysterical ending and one of his better efforts. Well worth watching. Recommended.
