The eternal conflict of the brave vs. the hungry
11 November 2005 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

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.
