Droopy Drawers

I know this probably happened a while back but could someone give me the details of Droopy's death?

Are you asking about the first Droopy Drawers? Isn't there an older one and a younger one?

Jim Mabe,The, "Original Droopy Drawers" died of cancer at the age of 69, Nov. 3rd, 2003.
He was one of the four Mabe Brothers who formed the Baldknobbers Show in 1959. [The first Show in Branson]...........
The Presley's were the first Show on the 76 Strip!

Yes, I know the Baldknobbers were the first show in Branson, I remember when they were down by Lake Taneycomo. I know the Presleys were first on the strip!! But there was also a Mabe brother that passed away this year too, was it Bill?

You are right. I think he passed away in April at age 74. I understand he was still performing until his death.
