Don't be fooled by the title - Droopy looks like Droopy, but he's actually jazzman John Pettibone, with his performing flea combo, and the film shows how it came into being.

The Great Race
25 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The $100,000 feature auto race is about to begin and it's two main contestants, of course, are Droopy and Butch. First to be introduced is "Daredevil Butch, driving a sleek "two-and- a-half litre, hand-tooled Pastrami Special." Next up: "his opponent, driving a 2-and-a-half litre, 3.5 Pizza Eight, Buzz Droopy." Butch's car is "all engine" while Droopy's has to be wound up with a key.

Overconfident Butch just laughs at his opponent, picks up the little car and uses it to light his cigar! "See you at the finish line, Shorty," he laughs.

If you are familiar with Droopy cartoons, you can guess what comes next: Butch trying all kinds of gimmicks or illegal tactics, or just plain criminal acts to win the race....but 'ole "Buzz" - like in the story of the Tortoise and the Hare - will not be deterred.

There are a number of funny gags in here, and the country-country scenery is fun to watch as the two over over winding mountain roads, over bridges, seasides, cattle crossings, etc. Good stuff.
