Dog of the Geek: Droop-A-Long!

Ricochet&droop-a-longBreed: Coyote

Original Appearances:
Ricochet Rabbit segments of The Magilla Gorilla Show (1964)

Other Appearances:
Ricochet Rabbit segments of Peter Potamus and his Magic Flying Balloon (1964), Yogi's Ark Lark, Yogi's Treasure Hunt, and a variety of children's books, comics, records, and toys.

Biography: Droop-A-Long was the deputy to Ricochet Rabbit in the western town of Hoop 'n' Holler (sometimes spelled “Hoopen Holler). Like many Hanna-Barbera pairings, Droopy (as he was known) was a complete slowpoke, compared to the much faster and exuberant Ricochet. Even Droopy's bullets moved in slow motion.

Powers: The ability to be real slow and shoot slow... if that could be considered a power!

Group Affiliation: Law enforcement of Hoop 'n' Holler.

Miscellaneous: There were only ten segments of Ricochet Rabbit on the Magilla Gorilla Show, although it was enough to get Ricochet and Droopy on a Magilla Gorilla record. They were replaced by Breezly & Sneezly. Oddly enough, Breezly & Sneezly were also on the later Peter Potamus program, and when that segment was dropped, 13 new episodes of Ricochet replaced them!

A “prototype” of Ricochet Rabbit was in the following cartoon:
