Storyline

A homeless cat (Claude Cat) searching for food is harassed by the playful antics and barking of an energetic pup (Frisky Puppy). Frisky repeatedly sneaks up behind the poor tabby cat (who hates the dog) and scares it into jumping vertically when it barks. After Claude finally silences the pup, he encounters a larger dog, whose bark has a disastrous effect. Tweety Bird has two lines. Can you guess what they are? Written by Anonymous

Trivia

'Tweety's only appearance in a Chuck Jones cartoon. He's in two scenes. First, as Claude Cat is scared by Frisky, (for the last time, in this cartoon), Tweety raises his head up and says "I tawt I taw a putty-tat". The second, was as the cartoon concludes Tweety sees Claude on the wing of an airplane and says "I did taw a putty-tat", then the closing scene occurs and goes to its concluding musical melody theme.

Direction Was Better Than The Story
18 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like the opening scene, with peaceful and what looks like a beautiful country shot....only to have a sign illuminated in the foreground which says, "City Dump."

The schizoid dog, zealously guarding his buried bone, growling and snarling one minute but cute, cuddly and waging his tale the next, had me laughing out loud several times. The reactions of the Claude The Cat were good, too.

However, after two minutes of this dog vs. cat story, it got tiresome. The dog's barking became abrasive and the dumb pooch lost its appeal. He became more of a pain in the butt than funny. In other words, his act wore thin. Claude The Cat, his opponent, is best when he's hanging upside down shaking. He played a good foil in here. At the end, we get a "guest appearance" by a certain famous Looney Tunes canary.

This cartoon had some wonderful direction and some great overhead shots I admired. It helped make up for a so-so story and elevated this to slightly-above average.
