A Tex Avery masterpiece!
21 December 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is truly one of the greatest animated shorts Avery ever did and one of the best of all time. Virtually every corny sight gag Avery could think of was shoehorned in here. The moon was far more loony here than Armstrong, Aldrin or any of the other astronauts found on their visits and the cat here finds the truth in the adage, "Look before you leap" in this cartoon. Hilarious doesn't even begin to describe this one! The crowd goes wild and let there be dancing in the streets! Most emphatically recommended.
