Quotes

[opening lines]
Droopy: [narrating] Once upon a time, there lived a king and all of his people. No one, not even the king, dared to leave the castle, because of a terrible dragon that lived in a nearby cave. In desperation, the king issued a proclamation: "To whomever shall rid our land of this terrible dragon I offer the hand of my beautiful daughter, the princess." Of all the king's knights, only two were brave enough to face the dragon, Sir Butchalot and Sir Droopalot. And so the two brave knight set ...

So-So Cartoon, And NOT An Oscar Winner
24 April 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

First of all, to correct one reviewer, this was not "an Academy Award Winning Cartoon." It was nominated, but did not win. That was justice, too, because this was nothing spectacular to begin with. In fact, if you've seen a number of Droop animated films, this ranks in the middle-to-lower half.

However, it was kind of "cute" with Droopy as the little knight, "Sir Droop-A-Lot.," competing with Butch, "Sir Wince-A-Lot" for the hand of the fair princess. A dragon has been terrorizing the area and the king has offered his beautiful daughter's hand to the knight that can slay the dragon.

The two little contestants then go out to battle the Dragon. The dragon just scoffs at these foes and makes mincemeat out of them in a hurry each time. Only when he insults Sir Droop-A-Lot by drawing a mustache and goatee on a picture of his beloved princess, does Droopy show his stuff. It was like Popeye eating his spinach and that finale was very good.
