Tex Avery: Droopy

I'd like to introduce to you one of my favorite cartoon directors, Tex Avery. The debut of this Tex Avery cartoon was on March 20th,1943 and features Droopy Dog in "Dumb-Hounded".

Droopy first appeared in this cartoon as a Basset Hound, before evolving into the cute little Droopy of today. This film includes a sight gag where the escaped prisoner, (the Wolf) who runs off the film and has to jump back into the cartoon.

Please enjoy this rare link to this first Droopy film.

See if you can spot the same sight gag in this second Droopy cartoon called "Northwest Hounded Police" produced in 1946.
