Droop-a-Long Coyote (voiced by Mel Blanc impersonating Ken Curtis' Festus Haggen character from the TV Western, "Gunsmoke".) is Ricochet's deputy and sidekick in the Ricochet Rabbit & Droop-a-Long cartoon series. Unlike Ricochet, Droop-a-Long is slow in speed and wits, and often his attempts to imitate Ricochet's famous "ping-ping-ping" routine resulted in him crashing through a window, or some similar accident except on one occasion when Ricochet and Droop-a-Long were running away from a bear.
