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.

A short weakened by a running gag which is wildly uneven in effectiveness, with a great beginning and a cute cameo

This short, which I must confess has two characters I find very unappealing, starts out marvelously for about the first 90 seconds, but the action quickly turns almost entirely to a series of setups for a running gag which is repeated (to varying degrees of effectiveness) so often that it starts to get tedious. The fact that the dog is a one-dimensional character of limited personality and that Claude Cat is limited here by the running gag only makes things more problematic. To a degree, the cameo by another Warner Brothers character and the ending of the short, along with a wonderful beginning, salvages this short and raises its overall score. This is on Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 3 and is worth watching, though the Collection as a whole is most highly recommended without reservation. Not the best short I've seen, but far from the worst I've watched. Recommended
