Storyline

Droopy and the wolf compete in a bullfight; the winner can get anything they want from all of Mexico. Both are inspired by the photo of Lina Romay on the cover of a magazine. The bull at first finds Droopy laughable. Of course, the bullfight is anything but boring and traditional. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

This Wolf Has A Lot Of Bull!
14 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Why is it most cartoons that feature Mexico always go right to the bullfights? I'm sure our friends south of the border do more than just go to the arena. Anywhere, he we are at the "Chili Bowl" for another bullfight. Apparently, they are pretty sure who is going to win as there is another sign advertising "Bullburgers Tonight."

We get the predictable battle between the wolf ("El Champion") and little Droopy ("El Challenger"). Both are not just in competition for a bullfighting title but also vying for the affections of Lina Romay, who was a real-life Hispanic actress in Hollywood in the '40s and '50s. In fact, "the winner gets anything he wants in all Mexico" and you know what these guys want!

This is the funniest bullfight I've ever seen. The cocky wolf is especially hilarious and talented! He deserved to win, but you just knew "Droopy, from Guadalupe" was somehow going to prevail.

This is more great stuff from The "Tex Avery's Droopy - The Complete Theatrical Collection" DVD.
