Anyone that reads this blog regularly knows of my love for Tex Avery's MGM cartoons. Those cartoons are some of the best ever created and for the most part his characters should be left untouched. Unless of course you're talking about Filmation's revival of Tex's beloved Droopy as part of the 1980 Tom & Jerry Comedy Show. Here's the classic "Disco Droopy". Much like Tex's cartoons the gags come at you one after another and the timing is razor sharp. The animation is top notch, yes there's reuse of animation but with good reason. Droopy's disco dance is so well animated why not use it in as much of the cartoon as possible. Hell, even Tex reused Preston Blair's animation of Red in "Little Rural Riding Hood." Slick Wolf lays down some pretty great dance moves of his own. I would love to know who animated those scenes. Anyway, enjoy this classic from one of the legendary cartoon studios.
