20 November 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

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.
