Storyline

Despite what's printed on the credits, Tex Avery had nothing to do with this cartoon - it's a Cinemascope remake of 'Wags to Riches' (1949), put together by others from his original artwork and production cels. Apart from the new Cinemascope backgrounds, it's identical to the earlier film. Written by Michael Brooke <michael@everyman.demon.co.uk>

Despite now knowing what I know about this short, I rather enjoyed Millionaire Droopy
13 May 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Watched this CinemaScope cartoon on the High Society DVD. Then looked this up on IMDb and found out that Tex Avery's animation on Wags to Riches was used on this cartoon with the backgrounds changed to reflect the different size and shape of the screen. Okay, so that constitutes a rip-off since that essentially means they used the same animation from a previous short and shoe-horned it into new footage of backdrops without any info in the credits. Still, I laughed at what I saw here and it's been so long since I last watched these vintage M-G-M cartoons so on that note, Millionaire Droopy is recommended if you haven't seen the previous cartoon I mentioned here.
