Sort of like Sylverster and Tweety but a lot earlier.
3 November 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the special features on the DVD for Warner Brothers' "Old Acquaintance". I love how the classic Warner films on DVD always seem to come with various extras--including a short and a cartoon from the same year as the feature film.

This Loony Toons cartoon is a lot like the later Sylvester and Tweety cartoons, but as these two characters were not created until later, this film stars a cute cat and an equally cute goldfish. And, like the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons, the cat spends the film trying to eat the fish and the fish outwits him again and again---but not nearly as easily as Tweety did, but in ways that still were quite funny. I loved the scene with the shower...but I won't say more as I don't want to spoil it. Plus, it turns out to have a very cute ending...one I certainly didn't expect!! Well made and funny--this is a marvelous little cartoon.
