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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
