50-50!

Apparently, this signaled the end of the great Tex Avery directing these cartoons as Michael Lah is billed as the director. Following in Avery's footsteps is a brutal act to follow, but this animated short still had a bunch of good moments and was a good representation of Droopy and the type of cartoons we were used to seeing from Avery. This was an excellent debut for Lah. Overall, he directed a handful of these before calling it quits in 1958. Only a couple of his Droopy cartoons were really good, but this is one of them.

This story immediately has shades of the famous Humphrey Bogart film, "The Treasure Of Sierra Madre," as gold quickly brings greed to the forefront. Butch, Droopy's mining partner for years (according to this story) gives a quick speech about the value of being selfless partners.....until Droopy strikes gold. Then, we hear a different song: "It's all mine!" says the Irish-speaking big mutt.

Droopy reminds him about their "50-50" agreement. In fact, that's the name of their mine: the "50-50 Mine - Share Alike." Butch quickly pulls out a written agreement about the mine being 100 percent the owner of one of them in case of accidental death to the other. You know where he's going with that one. (He's tried this before.)

From that point, we get the familiar gags of Butch trying to kill poor Droopy but everything backfiring on him. One thing that was different in this "new" Droopy is the amount of dialog. Usually, there wasn't much, but there is quite a bit in here. Droopy talked more in here that probably all his previous cartoons combined
