Good (but not great) Droopy cartoon that treads very familiar ground
This cartoon, while it has its moments and is very good, is really not that exceptional and really isn't much more than a redo of two earlier Droopy cartoons directed by Tex Avery (Senor Droopy and Homesteader Droopy) and while Michael Lah does a good job, why it was nominated for an Oscar is a trifle puzzling. There were certainly better cartoons in 1957 that weren't (Touche and Go, Mucho Mouse and even Blackboard Jumble, another Droopy), so its nomination "is a puzzlement", so to speak. Recommended.
