Dad Gum Television

The cattle rancher chases sheepherder Droopy into a saloon and urges the men inside to “shoot him down.”

Four consecutive frames.

The wolf hears gunfire. He peers inside the saloon.

A long pan from right to left.

“Dad gum television,” complains the wolf.

There are great scenes aplenty in Drag-a-long Droopy (released 1954), with Tex Avery himself playing the wolf (Bill Thompson is Droopy). Ray Patterson, Bob Bentley, Mike Lah, Grant Simmons and Walt Clinton are the animators.
