Cats may hate water, goldfish may hate cats, but I love this toon.
11 February 2004 | by (Bristol, CT) – See all my reviews

One of Chuck Jones' smaller efforts pits a hungry cat against a hat-wearing goldfish. The only deterrent is that the fish is in water, and according to the disembodied voice, "cats hate water". While that isn't necessarily true, the concept worked for this cat. Even if his claw gets wet, the cat rushes to the paper towels. You wonder why the fish taunts him, even stepping out of his safety zone, but without that there wouldn't be much of a story. Nevertheless, this happens to be an extremely funny sight gag show, especially when Jones used his trademark facial expressions, and spelling with underwater bubbles, in the scene when the cat discovers he is immersed completely in water.

A minor flaw is where the cat plugs up the dripping faucet with his paw. He still would have gotten wet from that I think.
