Dumb Hounded

For this WatchCat Wednesday, I'd like to introduce to you one of my favorite cartoon directors of all time, Tex Avery. The debut of "Dumb-Hounded" was on March 20th,1943 and features the first appearance of Droopy Dog.

Droopy first appeared as a cartoon version of a Basset Hound, before evolving into the cute little Droopy we know and love today. This film includes a sight gag where the escaped prisoner, (the Wolf) runs off the edge of the film and has to jump back in to finish the picture. 3 years later, that same gag was used in another Droopy cartoon called Northwest Hounded Police

Please enjoy this rare link to this first Droopy film.

Below is a shorten version of "Northwest Hounded Police" featuring Droopy and see if you can spot that same sight gag used in both films.

Thanks for Watching!

Until next Watchcat Wednesday, if you like what you see, let us know!
