Tex Avery's Droopy - Complete Theatrical Collection

( 1 )

Overview

Droopy, a detective basset hound, lulls the bad guys into a false sense of security by acting slow and dumb, when in fact he is a genius. The shrewd Droopy was outwitting enemies long before Columbo lit his first cigar. Created by animator Tex Avery at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1943, Droopy Dog spoke in a jowly monotone and demonstrated a deadpan wit. He didn't look like much, but he was more than a match for the sundry dogs, wolves, and foxes he went after. This two-disc collector's set contains 24 theatrical ...

Overview

Droopy, a detective basset hound, lulls the bad guys into a false sense of security by acting slow and dumb, when in fact he is a genius. The shrewd Droopy was outwitting enemies long before Columbo lit his first cigar. Created by animator Tex Avery at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1943, Droopy Dog spoke in a jowly monotone and demonstrated a deadpan wit. He didn't look like much, but he was more than a match for the sundry dogs, wolves, and foxes he went after. This two-disc collector's set contains 24 theatrical shorts produced between 1943 and '58, all remastered and unedited. Eight of the shorts were even filmed in then-groundbreaking 16x9 Cinemascope, and one short -- "One Droopy Night" -- earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Short Subject Cartoon in 1957. Extras include: "Doggone Gags," a montage of great moments from the Droopy series, assembled in the fashion of a gag reel; and "Droopy and Friends: A Laugh Back," a documentary retrospective. Peppered throughout the featurette are moments reflecting on Avery's unique cartoon genius.

    Droopy Stands Tall

    This collection of Tex Avery's complete Droopy cartoons is a treasure. The picture quality and sound are quite fine, despite the age of the originals. These extremely funny short films are among the most hilarious of the classic cartoons -- better even than Loony Tunes, in my opinion. Tex Avery plays a gag, tops it, and then tops it again (to use James Agee's reflection on the method of the great silent comedies of Lloyd, Chaplin, and Keaton). Droopy himself is endearing yet unflappable, the Wolf and Spike never cease to try to best him, to their own exaggerated chagrin. I give my strongest recommendation to anyone who enjoys beautiful cartoon animation and likes to laugh.
