Good running gags
30 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As we all know - cats hate water and goldfish hate cats. So when a cat wants to try and catch a goldfish in his bowl, how does he go about it? Well, here we see a cat trying to catch a fish without getting wet while the fish, realising this weakness, does all he can to get the cat wet.

Despite a dodgey narration start this cartoon actually is pretty funny. The use of running gags which are funny the first and last time make the material a lot better. Some of it doesn't totally work and the end is weak but that isn't too much of a problem as the laughs were pretty consistent for me the whole way.

The cat character is good - witness his repeated panicked run to get paper towels for himself, but the fish character is not as good as he could have been. Given that the audience were meant to get behind him, he is drawn (in both sense) a little bland and I enjoyed the cat more.

Overall though this was an enjoyable cartoon which uses running (literally) gags pretty well to create a consistent vein of humour that works.
