Ten years ago, in 2004, when my first DVD purchases consisted of the first seasons of LOST IN SPACE and THE FLINTSTONES, and the two-season run of SCOOBY-DOO WHERE ARE YOU (worthy cultural icons all), I would never have imagined I’d see a DVD set of LOOPY De LOOP!
...and actually thought he was a “made-up-for-comics” character, as were Uncle Scrooge and Gyro Gearloose for the Disney comics, Hedgerow Huppy for the Warner Bros. comics, and the Cave Kids for the Hanna-Barbera comics!
|That first Loopy comic, when I wondered who the heck he was!|
Indeed, Hanna-Barbera’s own HOKEY WOLF, an out-and-out con artist, might actually be one of the most benign depictions of a wolf in our vast popular culture.
|"Did you hear that, Ding? I'm actually benign!"|
|He'll get the business in the end!|
|"Say, Loopy... Why ARE you so unknown? I mean you're a really good wolf, after all!"|
Warner Archives is commended for this surprise release – especially as I took them to task for the poor job they had been doing with animation (in THIS POST).
|"Maybe zose Warner Archive Folks are not so bad, after all!"|
|HURRY! ORDER YOUR COPY!|
