Trivia

The schoolteacher-wolf is depicted as a Confederate sympathizer; he encourages his students to paint a Confederate flag. However, his "theme song," which he whistles several times in the short, is Henry C. Work's "Kingdom Coming" (1862), an anti-Confederate song, celebrating the impending end of slavery in America. (This may be a deliberate joke by the filmmakers, because the dimwitted protagonist may not realize this.) See more »

No Droopy = No Good
24 April 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This "Droopy cartoon" takeoff on the hit movie "Blackboard Jungle" was very disappointing. First, it didn't star Droopy, just three little kids who all looked like him, and the wolf," who appeared in a handful of these 'toons. Mainly, it just wasn't that funny.

Basically, it was just a collection of pranks by the three little monsters (no one else at this school?) perpetrated against the wolf, a substitute teacher. The latter takes over for the real teacher when the latter runs out of the school a raving lunatic, saying he can't handle this "modern education."

Our stereotypical southern drawl wolf with poor grammar takes over espousing a Liberal attitude about kids and education. However, he finds that the softer, liberal approach doesn't work, either, as the kids absolutely demolish him in every way.

Okay, but not the normal entertaining fare with "Droopy" in the lead.
