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>

Very good Droopy cartoon
14 February 2002 | by Robert ReynoldsSee all my reviews

This short is a very good Tex Avery Droopy. Droopy is the cartoon "Everyman" who somehow manages to come out on top whatever the odds are or the forces arrayed against him. Tex Avery's principal continuing character while at MGM, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Droopy was the character appearing in the most Tex Avery shorts of any continuing character Avery ever worked with. Given the characters he worked with at Warner Brothers, that's saying something! Good to see that it's in print. Well worth seeing. Recommended, particularly for Lina Romay *sigh*
