Droopy, Master Detective is an American animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera in association with Turner Entertainment, and a spin-off of Tom & Jerry Kids. It debuted on Fox and ran for 13 episodes from September 11 to December 3, 1993; in 1994, it was dropped from Fox's Saturday morning schedule on January 1st and returned on weekday afternoons in August and September.
Droopy, Master Detective is a spoof of detective films and cop shows, featuring Droopy and his son, Dripple, as detectives on the mean streets of a big city. Newly-made seven-minute episodes were mixed in with new seven-minute cartoons featuring the Tom and Jerry Kids characters. The rest of the half-hour program mostly was taken up by Screwball Squirrel, another Tex Avery creation from the 1940s.
In these new cartoons, Screwy made his home in a public park, making life miserable for hot-headed park attendant Dweeble and his dog Rumpley — both, rather typical Hanna-Barbera comedy foes rather than Tex Avery-inspired characters. It also included two more characters from the previous show: Wild Mouse and Lightning Bolt the Super Squirrel.
