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.

It's Enough To Drive An Irish Dog To Drink
18 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is different in that we get two Droopy dogs: he and his twin brother "Drippy."

In this story, Droopy is working for a butler in a big mansion and the butler is going to be away for a few days. He needs a replacement and Droopy gets Drippy to handle the chores. Drippy sounds like Droopy but is a lot more physical. You can tell by the little derby on his head which tough guys apparently used to wear in the 30s and 40s. You can also tell when Drippy enters the mansion by punching holes through the door!

No stranger is allowed in the house is the rule number one, Drippy is told. Guess who wants to hide in the house for a few days? Yup, our old friend "Spike." My favorite bad guy-bulldog also has a derby and speaks with an Irish accent in this cartoon! He made me laugh just listening to him. He's always funny as it is but an Irish brogue, he's really good! Spike's first plan is to hoodwink Drippy into giving him food. He gets his answer quickly, belted a few hundred yards with Drippy's only remark being "no strangers."

The gag for most of the cartoon is Drippy doing his job of making sure there are "no strangers" while Droopy being a nice guy and trying to help the big dog. All the time, the poor bulldog has no idea Droopy has that slugger for a twin brother. All he knows is that one minute everything is good, the next minute he's getting clobbered. Whatever.....it's funny material and I actually felt sorry for poor, clueless Spike who takes some brutal (but laugh- out-loud) beatings!

p.s. His double-take at the end of the cartoon is one of the best I've seen.
