Droopy: Theatrical Collection in May
Warner Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Tex Avery’s Droopy The Complete Theatrical Collection for 15th May 2007 priced at $26.99 SRP. World renowned Tex Avery created Droopy Dog, a low-key animated movie character at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. This mournful deadpan witty basset hound detective, who spoke in a jowly monotone voice, was shrewd enough to outwit his enemies – the conniving Butch the Irish bulldog and the thieving, Nasty Wolf and English Fox.
This two-disc collection features 24 re-mastered and unedited animated shorts including:
The Shooting of Dan McGoo
Wild and Woolfy
Northwest Hounded Police
Wags to Riches
The Chump Champ
Droopy’s Good Deed
Droopy’s “Double Trouble”
The Three Little Pups
The set also features 7 animated shorts in its original 16x9 Cinemascope version including:
Grin And Share It
One Droopy Knight
Mutts About Racing
The special features include:
“Droopy and Friends: A Laugh Back” – a documentary retrospective featuring the highlights of Tex Avery’s iconic character and band of regular misfits, which made the collection so memorable and dear to our hearts. Peppered through the featurettes will be moments reflecting Tex’s early days, from inspiration, to his passions as an artist, entertainer and eventual auteur.
“Doggone Gags” – a montage of great moments from the Droopy series, culled together in the fashion of a gag reel.
