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 »
The Wolf May Not Have Stolen The Sheep, But He StoleThe Show
This was very, very good, and only a weak ending in the last minute prevented this from being one of the best Droopy cartoons I've ever seen. It still ranks pretty high, thanks to "the wolf," who is flat-out hilarious in here.
The wolf is after the sheep, guarded by Droopy, the fearless Sheepherder. The wolf, that southern gentleman with the strong accent and humorous dialog, reminded me of the poor coyote in the Road Runner cartoons. Both of them tried every trick in the world to get their prey, only to have all the schemes backfire.
The sight gags in here are terrific and the wolf makes a number of funny cracks as well, even in defeat.
