Storyline

An orange cat lets it be known that it hates dogs. When the cat runs across a big mean looking bull dog, the cat does whatever it can to avoid the wrath of the dog while tormenting it. The cat comes across a device which lets it throw its voice, which the cat uses to trick the dog into thinking it's where it's not really located. Ultimately, the cat uses the device to turn another group of canines against one of their own. But the cat's action has an unforeseen consequence against itself. Written by Huggo

Cat's Meow (1957)

** (out of 4)

Avery remakes his 1950 cartoon VENTRILOQUIST CAT and doesn't succeed with it. This is pretty much a scene-for-scene remake that doesn't contain any real differences to the action or story. The only difference is that the cat is orange here and the dog is white. I guess the added bonus is that the film was shot in Cinemascope so we get a wider image but if you compare any of the images here, none of them are as full and contain as much as the original film. I watched this film minutes after the original and found it very hard to get through. It's the perfect example that you can film something twice and it doesn't necessarily mean you're going to come up with the same product. All of the jokes that worked in the original film are here and shot the exact same way yet they don't get any laughs this time out. I was a little surprised at how little was actually changed. Even the scene where the dog rips the clothes off the cop is the same but so are the color of boxers as well as the tattoo that the cop has. Couldn't they have at least changed something like that?
