The Wolf May Not Have Stolen The Sheep, But He StoleThe Show
25 April 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This was very, very good, and only a weak ending in the last minute prevented this from being one of the best Droopy cartoons I've ever seen. It still ranks pretty high, thanks to "the wolf," who is flat-out hilarious in here.

The wolf is after the sheep, guarded by Droopy, the fearless Sheepherder. The wolf, that southern gentleman with the strong accent and humorous dialog, reminded me of the poor coyote in the Road Runner cartoons. Both of them tried every trick in the world to get their prey, only to have all the schemes backfire.

The sight gags in here are terrific and the wolf makes a number of funny cracks as well, even in defeat.
