A wolf with a Southern accent walks by just as a teacher is getting fed up with his class and walks out. Unfortunately, the class consists of three junior clones of Droopy, who manage to try his patience.

Droopy is on his way to woo his lovely senorita when he is waylayed by a wolf intent on winning the fair lass. But the wolf wasn't counting on Droopy's uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time...
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... See full summary »
Tex Avery was not a series creator. He preferred to seek out new ideas and new situations, so much so that he ended his last Screwy Squirrel short with Screwy dead.
Yet if there was one Tex Avery character made for a Tex Avery series, it was Droopy. Droopy was the straight man to Avery's insane world. While Avery's other characters would compete to see who could have the most impossible reaction to a situation -- his wolves were subject to eyeballs that bulged out six feet -- Droopy was small, stoic and slightly depressed.
To watch him wandering around Ireland under the direction of Michael Lah, without any cartoonish reaction around him is a waste of time. Avoid this one.
