Droopy, the sad sack dog is getting his own DVD with Tex Avery’s Droopy:The Complete Theatrical Collection.
Droopy, a detective basset hound, lulls the bad guys into a false sense of security by acting slow and dumb when in actual fact he is a genius. The shrewd Droopy always outwits his enemies! Droopy Dog was a low-key animated movie character created by Tex Avery at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1943, this mournful deadpan witty Basset hound detective who spoke in a jowly monotone voice and, though he didn’t look like much, was shrewd enough to outwit his enemies – the conniving Butch the Irish bulldog and the thieving, nasty wolf and English Fox.
The DVD set will include the documentary “Droopy and Friends: A Laugh Back” and a gag reel culled from old Droopy footage. Perhaps most excitingly, the later Droopy films will be released in their original widescreen ratio enhanced for anamorphic sets.
The set will show up on May 15th for $26.99.
