Plutopia #

Pluto falls asleep and dreams of his "Plutopia" with a subservient cat begging Pluto to bite him and catering to his each need.

No Sail #

Released 9/7/1945

Description: Donald and Goofy rent a sailboat. This boat is a bit unusual: to rent it, you place a nickel in a slot, and the mast and sail pop up. Unfortunately, after a while, they pop back down. When Donald runs out of nickels, they are marooned. Goofy waves his shirt at a passing cruise ship, but they (and he) mistake this for a friendly greeting. A flying fish lands in the boat; while the men war over it, a gull grabs it. They test to bash the gull, which lands atop their heads, with predictable results. Finally, as the sharks circle, they test fishing, with Donald as the unwitting bait. He eventually lands back in the boat, where his bill lands in the coin slot and gives them a method home.

Description: Baseball fanatic and would be-star Donald Duck enjoys listening to a Globe Series minigame on the radio and 'playing' the part of his favourite star Casey in his own yard. Unfortunately a melomanic apis melifera (Latin for honeybee) is as avid to listen on the same radio to a mellifluous symphony and enjoy the director theatrically, waving a match as baton, instead of fertilizing his garden flowers. Donald first just turns the switch, then hides it, but the bee dials inside, so he tries to chase it, but is afraid by the sting. The war for channel choice gets worse, and vindictive.

The Shooting of Dan McGoo Reviews:

This is a makeover from other cartoon Tex Avery had done earlier at other studio. That short was named "Dangerous Dan McFoo." Both that one and this one, as stated in the cartoon's opening, are "based upon 'The Shooting Of Dan McGrew' from 'The Spell Of the Yukon and Another Verses' by Robert W. Service."This cartoon has an edge to it the previous didn't have, right in the opening stage were we see a sign stating the city is named "Coldernell" That that quick and you'll receive my drift. Seconds soon we see the gallows announcing a double-header and then a tiny noose for kids!The first saloon stage where "a bunch of the men are shooting it up" was wonderful and kudos to the restoration squad to worked on this "Tex Avery's Droopy - The Finished Theatrical Collection." It was scenes like this that create you appreciate how nice these cartoons look.This was an outstanding effort and certainly better than Avery's first cartoon about this storyline (which also was good). Of course, he had six more years of animated experience so it is no surprise this one topped the original. I can't tell enough nice things about this: the dialog, the humor and the artwork are all spectacular. I don't mean to overly gush, but this is one of the greatest cartoons I have ever seen - period, and I've seen hundreds of them.


Risky Dan McFoo, a short that Tex Avery directed at Warner Brothers, is re-made here some six years later, when Tex was at MGM. This cartoon is a bit crisper, with better timing, although both are quite nice and both unmistakably Tex Avery cartoons. The Robert W. Service poem that serves as the starting mission for both is used to much better result here and Avery had six more years worth of practice honing his timing on his much-loved sight gags. The pacing is better here and it's just a better cartoon. Tex Avery was one of the giants of his field, working at a time when the animated short was significant, at least moreso than it is today. Many of his conventions are still used today. Too terrible he didn't really seem to understand his impact while he was alive. From all reports, he felt that he'd been largely forgotten and had done tiny that would last. The work remains, but like most truly funny men, his private life was a less than satisfied one. Perfect cartoon. Well worth seeking out. Most highly recommended.


This is the second Droopy cartoon and its style is very unusual. Unlike the typical Droopy short, this one is, in part, narrated as if a poem (see the database from IMDb about this). However, despite this weird approach, the movie is still very exciting and worth seeing.Like the original "Dan McGrew" poem, this one is set in the wild days of the gold rush. But, unlike the poem this one details the insane stylings of Tex Avery as well as the very sexy lady hero featured in few of the Avery cartoons--and Droopy is lucky enough to victory her by the end of the cartoon.Funny. Well written, nice direction and it has one of the world's greatest cartoon characters, Droopy. Original and worth seeing.
