Today, Warner Home Video releases "Tex Avery's Droopy: The Complete Theatrical Collection," - available for the first time on DVD.
World renowned Tex Avery created Droopy Dog, a low-key animated movie character at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
This mournful deadpan detective, a witty basset hound who spoke in a jowly monotone, consistently outwitted his enemies - the conniving Butch the Irish bulldog and the thieving, Nasty Wolf and English Fox. He shrewdly lulled the bad guys into a false sense of security by acting slow and dumb, when in fact he was a genius.
"Tex Avery's Droopy: The Complete Theatrical Collection" features 24 re-mastered and unedited animated shorts, plus 7 animated shorts in their original 16x9 Cinemascope versions, including the Academy Award-nominated "One Droopy Knight."
A complete list of shorts follows after the jump.
Special features include a documentary retrospective and a montage of great moments from the Droopy series, culled together in the fashion of a gag reel.
