A jailhouse, a tempting safe... and a sleeping sheriff. Can the two villains make off with the loot without waking him up? Not if deputy Droopy has his way. Much of this cartoon is a remake... See full summary »
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 »
Who could get angry at that lovable wolf from "Billy Boy" (1954)? With his laid back whistling and his Southern drawl. He wears green striped boxers beneath his fur for crying out loud! He's only after a sheep 'cause he's hungry anyway. Certainly not Droopy. He just gets even. It is his duty to defend his flock of sheep after all. Director Michael Lah comes up with some good Tex Avery style gags the Droopy way, like the backfiring bottle full of flees (it seems the Droopster always keeps that red tuft of hair of his squeaky clean) and the obligatory pair of sexy legs.
Wolfie tries out several disguises, but when he dresses up like Little Bo Peep, it looks like the Drooper is about to stick his gun where the sun don't shine. That vicious carnivorous lamb killer even tries it the Wile E. Coyote way (borrowing a guided missile from a military compound), before being an inspiration to the Bubba character from "Forrest Gump" (fantasizing about his favourite meal). The finale is a bit of a downer for our friend the wolf, but certainly good for laugh for all us happy people. So even without Tex at the helm, Droopy and Wolvie deliver.
