The Old West Drive-In

The Old West isn’t so old in some cartoons; it always seems to have out-of-place modern inventions. Such a cartoon is Homesteader Droopy.

“In the vast emptiness of the great desert, the search for food was a never-ending problem,” says narrator Paul Frees. We see bleached bones of dead steers. The background quickly pans to a modern drive-in, with a sign in alternating neon light.

The animators in this short are Mike Lah, Grant Simmons, Walt Clinton and Bob Bentley.
