Storyline

A circus comes to town featuring Gracie the Fighting Kangaroo and her youngster, Hippety Hopper. Hippety slips out of the circus tent and hops into a yard where Sylvester Cat is bragging to his son, Junior, about how good a mouser he used to be. To prove he still has his mettle, Sylvester must fight against the playful Hippety, whom they, as usual, mistake for a giant mouse. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The earlier the better
2 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first Sylvester/Sylvester Jr. cartoon and it stands on its own merits despite a number of mediocre, repetitious followups. It still feels fresh if you can clear your mind of the later, lesser variations on the same theme.

The first 3 Sylvester Jr. cartoons are all very good and display the excellent loose and active animation of early Robert McKimson shorts and genuinely funny setups. The first six Sylvester/Hippety Hopper cartoons were all funny (3 with Sylvester Jr. and 3 solo) and managed to find fresh angles on the routine.

There was a definite cutoff point for the good ones. The last truly funny one was 'Cats A-Weigh' in 1953 then, just like that, from 1954 onward, they became predictably unfunny.

'Pop 'Im Pop' is a great example of Looney Tunes in their late-40s, early-50s prime when McKimson was still putting out brilliant cartoons before his rapid decline in the mid-50s.
