Meow Wow!
4 January 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

One of Tex Avery's best! A cat uses a device to throw his voice, thus leading a dog into many painful situations. Each gag is fresh and funny. Features the best scene of a dog dressing as a cat I've seen in a cartoon. The twist ending is hilarious. A classic!
