Droopy and Spike find themselves in a Boy Scout competition, with the first prize being a handshake with the President. As usual, Droopy tries to win in a fair and sportsman-like manner, while Spike pulls every dirty trick in the book. These dirty tricks, however, seem to have a nasty habit of back-firing.Written by

When the old gentleman's hat blows off, he is clearly wearing a bright red scarf - you can see it flapping in the wind. When Droopy returns with the hat, the old gentleman has a white kerchief instead of a long red scarf. See more »
Love animation, it was a big part of my life as a child, particularly Disney, Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, and still love it whether it's film, television or cartoons.
Also have much admiration for Tex Avery, an animation genius whose best cartoons are animated masterpieces and some of the best he ever did. Generally like the Droopy cartoons and the character himself a lot, his best cartoons are classics and among Avery's best. 'Droopy's Good Deed' is among my favourite Droopy cartoons, and one of his best and funniest pairings with Spike. Underneath the hilarious humour and wacky antics between Droopy and Spike, there is also a heart and good intention to 'Droopy's Good Deed', which makes it good-natured, heart-warming and the viewer liking Droopy even more than we do already and wanting to overcome his hurdles set by Spike.
Droopy, as usual, is so well established in personality and is high on the humour and charisma scale, also possessing a golden heart. Spike is even funnier and more interesting, his scheming and tricks are violent but imaginative and hilarious when everything he does goes badly wrong.
Typically, Avery does a wonderful job directing, with his unique, unlike-any-other visual and characteristic and incredibly distinctive wacky humour style all over it as can be expected.
Once again there is nothing sadistic or repetitious about 'Droopy's Good Deed'. It's hilarious, imaginative content that has enough variety to stop it from being too predictable. The ending is a riot in particular. Whether with the central conflict it is easy to figure out who gets the upper hand and who gets the worst of it doesn't matter here.
It is no surprise either that the animation is superb. The character designs are unique, Avery always did have creative character designs, and suitably fluid. The music, courtesy of Scott Bradley, is lushly and cleverly orchestrated, with lively and energetic rhythms and fits very well indeed.
Can never fault the voice acting in the Droopy cartoons, Bill Thompson and Daws Butler were always independently excellent voice actors and 'Droopy's Good Deed' is further testament to this.
Overall, brilliant. 10/10 Bethany Cox
