A rehashing of "It's Hummer Time" (1950)
12 November 2003 | by (Flint MI) – See all my reviews

This is a rehashing of gags from another LT, "It's Hummer Time" from 1950, also from Robert McKimson and Warren Foster. In the earlier cartoon, a cat chases a hummingbird but winds up bothering a dog who gives the cat similar punishment as this cartoon. The final gag when the cat gives the bug his comeuppance was very funny. "Oh no, not the post, not the post" before the cat starts to hit the bug with a rolled up copy of the Post newspaper.
