I don't know whether or not cats is duh cwaziest people, but Bob Clampett was sure one of duh cwaziest directors!
2 January 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Since cartoon characters usually take their dogs hunting, it was at the very least interesting to see Porky Pig take his cat hunting. But not even that idea could have prepared me for what was in store here.

After Porky tells the loopy feline that they're having fish for dinner, the cat sort of flips out to the point where the bird decides that he's seen everything (in case you don't know that gag, you'll find out). But it's once they go fishing that the cartoon takes off. This fish acts as if he's on acid or something. It seems that the Termite Terrace crowd took Daffy from "Porky's Duck Hunt" and applied the characteristics to an aquatic vertebrate.

All in all, "The Sour Puss" is definitely a funny one. You're sure to like it. The last line is a parody of Lew Lehr, who appeared in Movietone newsreels in the 1930s and said things like "Chickens is duh cwaziest people!" The Termite Terrace crowd also parodied him in "She Was an Acrobat's Daughter" and "Scaredy Cat".
