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

Cinemascope Re-Make of Tex Avery's 1950 Ventriloquist Cat
2 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cat's Meow was slightly re-designed of Tex Avery's original Ventriloquist Cat (1950) cartoon.

The only differences among 1950's Ventriloquist Cat and 1957's Cat's Meow are the cat & film design.

Bill Hanna & Joe Barbera both directed & produced the Cat's Meow cartoon. The cat in Ventriloquist Cat, its fur is black. The cat, in Cat's Meow, its fur is orange. The only other difference is Cat's Meow was filmed in cinema scope.

The cat in Cat's Meow looks a lot like Mr. Jinks, the orange cat in the cartooned TV series, Pixie & Dixie, except Mr Jinks wore an ascot tie and the orange cat of Cat's Meow had no tie.

The lines, in both cartoons, are exactly the same.
