Señor Droopy (1949) Online

Droopy and the wolf compete in a bullfight; the winner can get anything they want from all of Mexico. Both are inspired by the photo of Lina Romay on the cover of a magazine. The bull at first finds Droopy laughable. Of course, the bullfight is anything but boring and traditional.

The working title for this cartoon was "The Bull Fight".

User reviews



Why is it most cartoons that feature Mexico always go right to the bullfights? I'm sure our friends south of the border do more than just go to the arena. Anywhere, he we are at the "Chili Bowl" for another bullfight. Apparently, they are pretty sure who is going to win as there is another sign advertising "Bullburgers Tonight."

We get the predictable battle between the wolf ("El Champion") and little Droopy ("El Challenger"). Both are not just in competition for a bullfighting title but also vying for the affections of Lina Romay, who was a real-life Hispanic actress in Hollywood in the '40s and '50s. In fact, "the winner gets anything he wants in all Mexico" and you know what these guys want!

This is the funniest bullfight I've ever seen. The cocky wolf is especially hilarious and talented! He deserved to win, but you just knew "Droopy, from Guadalupe" was somehow going to prevail.

This is more great stuff from The "Tex Avery's Droopy - The Complete Theatrical Collection" DVD.


This short is a very good Tex Avery Droopy. Droopy is the cartoon "Everyman" who somehow manages to come out on top whatever the odds are or the forces arrayed against him. Tex Avery's principal continuing character while at MGM, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Droopy was the character appearing in the most Tex Avery shorts of any continuing character Avery ever worked with. Given the characters he worked with at Warner Brothers, that's saying something! Good to see that it's in print. Well worth seeing. Recommended, particularly for Lina Romay *sigh*


Have you ever noticed that most Droopy cartoons are eerily similar? Droopy and the Wolf are battling in a sports event. The prize is a lovely lady, or a date with a lady, or a kiss from a lady, or some such thing like that. If Droopy wins, the lady turns out to be even more fabulous than we had been previously shown. If the Wolf wins, there's something horribly wrong with her that had been hidden before. This cartoon fits the pattern perfectly. This time the contest is a bullfight, and the lovely lady is Lina Romay. But in spite of the predictability, the cartoon is good overall, with good animation and cute physical humor.


Love animation, it was a big part of my life as a child, particularly Disney, Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, and still love it whether it's film, television or cartoons.

Also have much admiration for Tex Avery, an animation genius whose best cartoons are animated masterpieces and some of the best he ever did. Generally like the Droopy cartoons and the character himself a lot, his best cartoons are classics and among Avery's best. 'Senor Droopy' is not quite among the best for either, but is still a great cartoon, even if the central conflict and story are predictable with a less than surprising outcome. Droopy is still lovable and very funny, with his personality very well established already.

The Wolf is a villain that has menace and great comic timing, love his reactions, in expressions and body language, and physical humour. The Announcer's dialogue is wonderfully droll and the bull is both formidable and entertaining, serving the concept very well where the fun and danger of the sport is very well captured in unmistakably inventive and often hilarious Avery fashion.

Avery does a wonderful job directing, with his unique, unlike-any-other visual and characteristic and incredibly distinctive wacky humour style all over it as can be expected.

'Senor Droopy' is typically wacky, clever, creative and full of inspired visual and vocal gags with some hilariously witty dialogue. Never once does it feel repetitive, even in the more predictable moments, and always moves along at a cracking pace.

It is no surprise either that the animation is superb. The character designs are unique, Avery always did have creative character designs, and suitably fluid. The music, courtesy of Scott Bradley, is lushly and cleverly orchestrated, with lively and energetic rhythms and fits very well indeed.

Voice acting is very good especially from Bill Thompson.

Overall, great if not quite one of the Droopy and Avery masterpieces. 9/10 Bethany Cox


A cartoon that takes place in a bull arena - always every cartoon incarnation, from Disney to the Pink Panther to Droopy, has to have a story where the main character takes on a bull.

This cartoon is not bad; not the most funny, but there are some moments where you'll get some chuckles - especially the part where Droopy slaps the bull silly. But mostly, it's just a lot of running around and bull dodging.
