After reading his favorite Dick Tracy comic, Daffy Duck has a surreal dream in which he is Duck Twacy, a private eye on the trail of an army of horrifyingly grotesque villains who stole every piggy bank in town, including his own.
A virtual remake of 'Dumb-Hounded' (1943), in which Canadian Mountie Sergeant McPoodle (aka Droopy) relentlessly pursues the escaped wolf, who tries everything (including plastic surgery) to shake him off his tail...Written by

The plastic surgeon has hair with a bald spot and a mustache, but after he operates on Wolfie a second time, and just before being revealed to be Droopy, he is completely bald with no mustache. See more »

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.
