Screaming, irritating bird.
8 October 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a cartoon short featuring Minnie Mouse's cat, Figaro, who tries to live under the same roof with Minnie's constantly-singing bird Frankie. Figaro understandably doesn't like him and tries to rid him of his constant running beak. For me, I felt sorry for that cat, having not only to put up with Frankie's singing, but also its bratty personality.

Figaro can be a brat and a bully himself sometimes, but he's still funny to watch. He ends up struggling with the good and bad sides of his conscience as he tries to figure out if he should save Frankie from a bulldog. A little suspenseful and intriguing and it's a cartoon that I remember fondly from my childhood. But, it just too bad Frankie wasn't too lovable or less annoying.

Grade B-
