CotD: Originally titled The Shooting of Dan McScrew, “The Shooting Of Dan McGoo” this film is loaded with great sight gags, and smacks heavily of World War II.

The Shooting Of Dan McGoo (1945) – Droopy Theatrical Cartoon Series

The story begins in Coldernell, Alaska- Population 320 and getting smaller. A wild, rough town where gold is king and gambling, drinking and shooting each other are the major activities.

Droopy is Dangerous Dan McGoo, a lone gambler, whose only love is the girl they call “Lou,” played by Red.

In one gag, the wolf wants a drink of whiskey (Old Panther). After he chugs it down, it shows his stomach being blasted from the drink. His eyes go red, and smoke comes out of his ears. He flies around the room and comes back to the bar. Leaning over to the bartender, he complains, “This stuff’s been cut.”
