Famous Basset Hound Friday #3

This week's famous basset hound is an old favorite: Droopy Dog! Droopy is a cartoon character created in 1943. He is probably the most famous animated basset hound, although there are other notable cartoon hounds that made our list.

The Wikipedia entry for Droopy has this to say:

"... Droopy moved slowly and lethargically, spoke in a jowly monotone, and, though he did not look like much, was shrewd enough to outwit his enemies and, when finally roused to anger, capable of beating adversaries twice his size with a comical thrashing... "

Layla and I agree! We bassets may not look smart or strong, but we are really just playing it cool the whole time! Droopy's first cartoon was called Dumb-Hounded, and you can watch it on YouTube if you want.

Droopy was also in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, which dad says is one of the best animated movies of all time. He doesn't get much screen time though, but he does get to wear a pretty cool costume. I couldn't find that video on YouTube though, but you should definitely watch the movie sometime. There's a basset hound in it after all!

So there's your Famous Basset Hound for this week!
