Droopy one of the greatest Dog cartoons the world has ever known, is best recognized for his slapstick gags and hilarious adventures. This character is still being imitated today, over forty years after he was created. Droopy had been part of MGM’s theatrical cartoon line-up since 1943. After decades in show business, the beloved dog came to television as part of 1979's The Tom and Jerry Show. Additionally, 1990's Tom and Jerry Kids hosted a regular Droopy segment.

The Droopy & Dripple TV series is currently broadcast throughout Europe.
