The Hilarious 1958 Academy Award Winning Cartoon!
21 October 2006 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Well, I guess even Academy Award winning cartoons can't please everybody, but the gentleman from Tucson who thought this was "good but not great" is dead wrong! True, the animation is not the quality of the Golden Age of Cartoons, but this cartoon ISN'T about the animation. The script and the characters are by turns dry, witty, uproariously funny, and finally fall-down hilarious. Bill Thompson deserved his own Oscar for voicing both Droopy and Butch -- talk about two extremes! And keeping Knight Butchalot's Irish accent was a touch of comic genius. Even though this was a Droopy cartoon, the Dragon steals the show with his utter disdain and complete disregard of Sir Droopalot as an adversary, shunting him aside in hilarious ways and giving all his attention to the macho Sir Buchalot. This is a truly great cartoon that lives up to its Oscar win!
