The Little Dog with the Southern Drawl
29 December 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

As usual, the wolf (the bad guy) matches wits with a worthy adversary. In this case, it is Droopy, the slow talking hound who never seems to get flustered. As the wolf tries to make his escape, the little guy shows up around every corner. He's always one step ahead. In addition to the cleverness of this episode, we also have the great Tex Avery and his amazing takes by the wolf. When he sees the little Mountie for about the fifth time, his jaw drops, his eyes pop out, and he literally goes to pieces. The whole thing is just unfair. There are great sight gags all over the place. It is high speed animation at its best. I always looked forward to the Droopy cartoons before the feature films in my youth.
