Storyline

After a few too many close calls, Sniffles and his friends decide that the best way to keep themselves safe from the cat is to put a bell around its neck. When it comes time for someone to do the job, though, Sniffles is left holding the short straw. So off he goes with his friend the inchworm to find the cat at bell it. The cat, however, may have other plans. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

surprisingly, an allegedly "cute" cartoon has a not-so-cute title
14 August 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so Chuck Jones's first star was the cute-ad-nauseam Sniffles; I would call him the last shred of the Warner Bros. animation department trying to act like Disney (it affirmed their total break from the Disney mold once Bugs Bunny became their cartoon star). Personally, I think that some of that rodent's actions are going to get him killed or something.

But there's something else. While "Sniffles Bells the Cat" is supposed to be a "cute" cartoon, that title sounds to me like it belongs on a porno flick. Maybe it's just because I've seen "Myra Breckinridge" (you'll know what I mean if you see the movie) or it might be something else, but to me that's the most unusual title for a "cute" cartoon.

Anyway, this comes across as a place holder between the really great cartoons.
