A perpetually-hungry dog has a great scheme going: planting a cat in different houses and bullying it out the food its "owners" give it. But he keeps getting hungrier and hungrier, and the cat keeps forgetting the gravy.

This Time we Didn't forget the gravy
12 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chow Hound is a brilliant masterpiece. Directed by Chuck Jones this cartoon is a masterpiece. featuring memorable lines. John T. Smith voices the dog, Bea Benaderet voices the women and Mel Blanc does the rest. the cartoon is about a dog who uses a cat for personal game for meat. It is a brilliant masterpiece . then the cat is known as Butch, Harold, and a Sabertooth alley cat. It's not a Chuck Jones brilliance but is still to enjoy. I think the dog should of went further then this cartoon. This cartoon earns an 8 out of ten rating because it is not that of a brilliance and it does not earn recognition. the dog is well voiced but come on the cartoon doesn't earn a fair rating but is an classic to enjoy a cartoon to remember for generations. Thank You for reading my comment.
