Brief History Of " Droopy Dog "...Do You Remember This Lovable Dog" Who Could whip Some Butt" !! 1943-1960's

 Droopy Dog is an animated cartoon character from the golden age of American Animation. He was created in 1943 by Tex Avery for theatrical cartoon shorts.
Produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and voiced by Bill Thompson. Due to his extremely slow nature and deadpan voice, Droopy was a hit with audiences and went on to become one of MGM's most popular cartoon characters, alongside other staples like Tom and Jerry and Barney Bear. He made regular appearances in cartoons from the 1940s until the early 1960s, and since then he has made sporadic random guest appearances in both animated shows and feature films such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Space Jam. As his name implies, Droopy is always portrayed as a droopy-eyed mutt, although his original design was much rougher and less refined than what we know today. He is often presented as a foil to other characters in the cartoons, most notably in his rivalry with Wolfie, who was actually modeled after him but with a more aggressive disposition. Tex Avery, the creator of Droopy Dog, was renowned for his wit and visual humour. He worked at a number of studios throughout his career, including Warner Brothers and MGM, and was largely responsible for developing the "looney" style of animation that's still popular today. He also had a hand in creating other popular characters such as Daffy Duck, Screwy Squirrel, and George P. Dog. Avery was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005 and passed away in 1980.
