Storyline

A rough and tough bulldog named Spike sets out with his admirer, a small dog named Chester, to rough up a cat. They encounter Sylvester and chase him into a junkyard, where a black panther that escaped from a zoo just happens to be hiding out. Every time Spike goes into the junkyard to thrash Sylvester, he is clawed into pieces by the panther, which he, in a dark maze of crates, thinks is Sylvester. Chester has no problem pummelling Sylvester before Spike's eyes, which convinces Spike that Chester must be tougher than him. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

mistaken identities come to fruition in many ways
3 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In one of the instances in which Sylvester was given a different kind of role, he gets chased by mismatched dogs Spike and Chester. In what one might call a twist of logic - hey, the Termite Terrace crowd loved to twist logic - whenever the big, strong Spike goes after Sylvester, he meets an escaped panther, and whenever puny Chester goes after Sylvester, he clobbers him.

My favorite parts are when Spike, totally self-assured, goes to make mincemeat out of Sylvester, and gets nearly massacred by the panther. It's a pretty outlandish cartoon, but that's exactly what the guys behind these cartoons loved. Definitely worth seeing. Followed up by "Dr. Jerkyl's Hide", and later incorporated in the compilation film "Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island".

I wonder what ever became of the panther.
