Hubie and Bertie have a go at Claude for the first time, and the result is a riot.
21 December 2003 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The infamous though short series of Hubie-Bertie cartoons kicks off with this short, in which they convince Claude that he's a lion (I'll let you see for yourself how they do it; Hubie's lines are great) and do him up to look like a hairless one in miniature. The dog is supposed to be his prey, and the dog hasn't read the script.

This cartoon is really funny. Again it makes me sad watching it, because of those eternally sadistic mice. I hope one day that Claude gets his own back. Visually, the cartoon is funny to behold, as Claude hunts the dog determinedly, but then decides he needs smaller prey after each attempt. Fortunately for the star rodents, the prey is never reduced to something the size of, say, a mouse. The dog, after some psychological warfare by the mice, plays along. But it doesn't work for long. But you don't only have these four stars. Watching from his nest in a tree is a bird, who's an added source of comic relief. He is completely baffled at what goes on below in the yard, cat hunting dog. The peculiar ending features the bird, who seems to think the world has been turned upside-down. And so it has, or at least the yard has. As I was saying, visually the weirdness of what's going on is enough, but it's the lines that really make this cartoon great to watch. That's the key element to the series. You see the beginnings of the Chuck Jones style, as you see the distinctive expressions that only he can create. Even when silent, the characters, can say so much, especially the bird. He's a really funny addition to a really funny cartoon. I haven't yet achieved my goal of seeing all of Claude's cartoons, but I aim to. For fans of the sadistic Hubie and Bertie as well their victim Claude, and for anyone who likes cartoons, I highly recommend Roughly Squeaking. It's a riot.
