The Cat That Hated People was another great Tex Avery cartoon from M-G-M
9 July 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Though there are no voice credits in this cartoon, it's obvious that the person who's giving the title cat words is meant to impersonate Jimmy Durante who like this cartoon was a product of M-G-M during this time. Mixed with the usually violent Tex Avery gags, this was one of the funniest of his especially when the cat gets it from a bulldog and when he goes to the moon where he encounters the craziest loonies this side of Bob Clampett when he had Porky visit Wackyland! Also, I must credit Scott Bradley for his scores on many of these Avery and Hanna-Barbera cartoons that complement them so perfectly that he often gives Warner Bros. Carl Stalling a run for his money! So on that note, I highly recommend The Cat That Hated People.
