  • In most of his cartoons, Droopy matches wits with either a slick anthropomorphic (the Wolf character "portrays" the crooks in both and its semi-remake, (1946)) or a bulldog named "Spike", sometimes silent, sometimes sporting a accent. Two Droopy cartoons - and - also feature appearances from the curvy heroine of Avery's (1943) as a damsel in distress being pursued by the Wolf. Three later Droopy cartoons - (1953), (1957), and (1958) - feature a slow-moving southern wolf character. Voiced by in a dialect he later used for 's , this wolf was a more deadpan character with a tendency to whistle "" (aka "Jubalio") to himself (much like Huckleberry would sing "" to himself).

    Avery took a year-long break from MGM from 1950 to 1951, during which time took over his unit to do one Droopy cartoon, , and several cartoons. Avery returned in late 1951 and continued with Droopy and his one-shots until the Avery unit was dissolved by MGM in 1953. Michael Lah, an Avery animator, stayed on long enough to help and complete after Avery had left the studio. Lah himself then left MGM, but returned in 1955 to direct Droopy cartoons costarring either Spike, now called Butch because of the same-named bulldog in Hanna and Barbera's cartoons, or the "Kingdom Coming"-whistling wolf. One of these, (1957), was nominated for the 1957 for Best Short Subject (Cartoons). However, by the time of s release in December 1957, the MGM cartoon studio had been closed for six months, a casualty of corporate downsizing.

  • It was speculated that new theatrical shorts were to be produced in 2004, along with newer and cartoons produced by , but owing to the unsuccessful release of in November 2003 which nearly caused the dissolution of the whole studio, production on the planned shorts was canceled. However, unlike some of these and cartoons, no Droopy cartoons were completed. Indeed, it was unknown if these cartoons were produced, probably only a proposed plan if the film was a hit.

    On May 15, 2007, (whose corporate sibling now owns the rights to the character) released all of Droopy's MGM cartoons on DVD as .] The seven Droopy cartoons produced in CinemaScope were released in their original widescreen versions, instead of the versions regularly broadcast on television.

  • Apparently, this signaled the end of the great Tex Avery directing these cartoons as Michael Lah is billed as the director. Following in Avery's footsteps is a brutal act to follow, but this animated short still had a bunch of good moments and was a good representation of Droopy and the type of cartoons we were used to seeing from Avery. This was an excellent debut for Lah. Overall, he directed a handful of these before calling it quits in 1958. Only a couple of his Droopy cartoons were really good, but this is one of them.

    This story immediately has shades of the famous Humphrey Bogart film, "The Treasure Of Sierra Madre," as gold quickly brings greed to the forefront. Butch, Droopy's mining partner for years (according to this story) gives a quick speech about the value of being selfless partners.....until Droopy strikes gold. Then, we hear a different song: "It's all mine!" says the Irish-speaking big mutt.

    Droopy reminds him about their "50-50" agreement. In fact, that's the name of their mine: the "50-50 Mine - Share Alike." Butch quickly pulls out a written agreement about the mine being 100 percent the owner of one of them in case of accidental death to the other. You know where he's going with that one. (He's tried this before.)

    From that point, we get the familiar gags of Butch trying to kill poor Droopy but everything backfiring on him. One thing that was different in this "new" Droopy is the amount of dialog. Usually, there wasn't much, but there is quite a bit in here. Droopy talked more in here that probably all his previous cartoons combined
