The story of a little boy who would only talk in sound effects. With story by Dr. Seuss (and Bill Scott of Rocky and Bullwinkle fame) this cartoon won the Oscar for best short subject (animated) for 1950.

When the bulldog shoved books in a bookcase (where kitten was hiding), Hanna & Barbera's Tom & Jerry short Kitty Foiled (1948) appears as KITTY FOILED, capital letters on kitten for approximately five seconds. And approximately one minute before kitten met his rescuer, that it later rescued. See more »
Bad Luck Blackie is an animated short about an adorable kitten and a mean bulldog willing to do anything to anger and hurt the kitten. Luckily, the kitten finds another cat who can cause bad luck to anyone. With the help of this cat, the bulldog gets a taste of it's own medicine, and the viewers get even more laughs. It's pretty much your basic dog chases cat cartoon, but that excellent twist makes it a lot of fun to watch. From start to finish you'll find that there are tons of smart ironic jokes and lots of laugh out loud slapstick comedy. I can honestly say that I don't often laugh out loud or even crack a smile at these kinds of things, but I found myself trying to control my laughter as I watched late at night while everyone else in the house was in bed. It's just a fun little film to make you laugh, and nothing else. Don't expect writing or acting or anything that you'll remember for the rest of your lives.
I liked this quite a bit, I think anyone who likes any of this stuff will too. I rate it a seven out of ten.
