A baby kangaroo hops out of his zoo cage and roams into the surrounding city. The kangaroo stops at Sylvester Cat's home while Sylvester is hunting for mice with a fishing rod. When Sylvester "reels in" the kangaroo, he thinks he has caught a giant mouse and makes a humiliatingly unsuccessful attempt to catch him. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Another good cartoon with Sylvester but not Tweetie
25 June 2010 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I love Tweetie, but I'm so used to associating Sylvester with Tweety that I find it good to watch cartoons with Sylvester and different characters once in a while.

This particular Looney Tunes episode features a joey kangaroo, in a zoo, who manages to hop out of his mother's pouch, out of the zoo cage and into the big wide world. After one or two scrapes with humans, the joey arrives at Sylvester's house, where the cat is using a fishing rod to pick up mice (yes, very strange...). Finding the place where the mice live, the joey tugs on Sylvester's line and soon he's up against one big mouse!! At least, he thinks it's a mouse...

I enjoyed this episode because of some of the remarks from Sylvester, the very cute joey and the way the cartoon turns out in the end. The episode was quite slapsticky and predictable in places but I liked it all the same.

I recommend this episode to people who love Sylvester, to people who like a mixture of slapstick and verbal jokes in Looney Tunes and to people who like Looney Tunes in general. Enjoy "Hop, Look and Listen"! :-)
