Storyline

Sex seems to be on the minds of the animals on a backyard fence: the alley cats following a solitary female who may be in heat and the bull and the cows painted on an advertisement. After some singing by the cloven-hoofed crowd and music from a jazz band of cats, the focus is on one particular male cat and his tough-guy rival for the affections of the one female. After she watches them fight with each other and then confront a bull dog, she may have her own solution to the rivalry. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sittin' on a Backyard Fence was another Schlesinger Merrie Melodies short from the early Warner Bros. cartoon years
26 May 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was a Merrie Melodies cartoon short from Leon Schlesinger incorporating a song owned by the Warner Bros. publishing company with its title being the one here. It involves a couple of male cats fighting for the love of one female feline. Loved scenes of the cats' skeletons appearing when they cross a full moon, some sequences involving a rolling pin and telephone wires, the male cats' fight with a bulldog, and the final scene. This early short was directed by Earl Duvall who helmed some bland Buddy cartoons after Harmon-Ising left Schlesinger and took Bosko with them to M-G-M. Worth a look for animation buffs, this was on Daily Motion.
