Storyline

To escape a bulldog, Sylvester Cat allows himself to be adopted by a little girl. The little girl turns out to be rougher than the bulldog, though in her case it is entirely out of love. She bathes him in a washing machine, feeds him sardines and liver made of mud, puts him in the refrigerator to hide him from her disapproving mother, thaws him out with an overhot electric blanket, and blows his facial fur off with a backfiring rocket. Sylvester prefers to go back to the dog. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

"I got an idea, putty."

On the run from a bulldog, Sylvester seeks refuge with a little girl named Suzanne. He soon finds out the bulldog might have been the better option! A very funny short from Friz Freleng. The way the little girl handles poor Sylvester would be terrible in real life but in a cartoon it's hilarious. Wonderful voice work from the incomparable Mel Blanc. Lucille Bliss does the voice for little Suzanne and is just adorable. The music is energetic and fun. Lovely animation with bright colors and well-drawn characters and backgrounds. I especially love the range of expressions on the face of Sylvester in this. If the scene where she feeds him "liver and sardines" doesn't have you in stitches, I'm afraid you were born without a funny bone. This is a real underrated jewel in the crown of Freleng and the character of Sylvester. It had me laughing from the start to the finish.
