Storyline

Elmer Fudd takes in Sylvester Cat and an orange kitten during a cold winter night. He'd like to adopt them both but can only keep one. He decides to go to bed and make up his mind in the morning. Sylvester and the kitten both want to be the one who is adopted. So, each tries to "frame" the other for misdeeds in hopes of swaying Elmer's decision in their favor. The noise escalates to the point that all three- Sylvester, the kitten, and Elmer too- are evicted and must scrounge for food in trash cans. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Slow buildup and hysterical and intense finish
10 February 2004 | by (TX, USA) – See all my reviews

Sylvester and this kitten are both trying to get shelter from the freezing storm when they arrive, one at a time, at the doorstep of Elmer Fudd. It's predictable stuff at first. Elmer can't keep both cats, but he's very partial to the kitten. Sylvester does everything he can to make the kitten "lose points" with Elmer, but to no avail, until Sylvester is actually a thread away from getting bounced outside.

The element that makes this a gem is the frenetic ending. It builds mercilessly into a hysterical display of the cats trying to get one up upon the other with the radio blaring and synchronized to their actions. It's very well directed and totally memorable.
