Dixieland Droopy (1954)

Don't be fooled by the title - Droopy looks like Droopy, but he's actually jazzman John Pettibone, with his performing flea combo, and the film shows how it came into being.

A boring jazzman role.
2 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Droopy takes on a jazzman role, and what results is a narrated dixieland jubilee with a boring plot-line and lesser laughs. There's almost nothing to laugh about and the story is very basic.

Not of the funner or better Droopy cartoons. Below average.

Grade D-
