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.

The cat is instructed to gather juicy steaks and then surrender them to the bulldog, who badgers each time, "What, no gravy?!" Eventually, the bulldog holds the cat hostage for months, anticipating that the cat's "owners" will post rewards in the newspaper. The bulldog returns the cat to his masters, collects the reward and then reclaims his cat by means of a trick-bed. The dog uses his ill-gotten gains to purchase a meat butcher shop, where "acres and acres" of meat hang from the ceiling.

Amusing but a little repetitive
3 January 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A dog is so hungry he can never get enough food. He uses a cat to `belong' to about 10 different homes and bring him the food from all of them to him. He also uses a mouse to play dead and get rewards for the cat for catching him. When this isn't enough he devises a plan to get even more from the cat.

Hoping to see a scheduled Wallace and Gromit short, I was disappointed to have this come on instead. Once over this I settled into this to try and waste a few moments. The cartoon is amusing but the one joke repeats itself until the final two minutes that are clever, and a good ending.

The characters are of the usual animation style and everyone will recognise the structure of the dog, cat and mouse. It's only a shame that the plot has only a few jokes in it, but it is still amusing and worth a few minutes of your time.
