A terrible reworking of 'Feed the Kitty' which drains away all the charm and artistry of that classic cartoon
9 January 2009 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Chuck Jones's 'Cat Feud' is a dreadful reimagining of his masterpiece 'Feed the Kitty', starring the affectionate bulldog Marc Anthony and the cute kitten Pussyfoot. Since 'Feed the Kitty' was such a perfect cartoon, I was always sceptical of an follow-ups. However, the excellent 'Kiss Me Cat', Jones's first Marc Anthony and Pussyfoot sequel, proved that there was more mileage in the characters. 'Cat Feud', however, is just abysmal. Taking Marc Anthony and Pussyfoot out of the home environment, 'Cat Feud' also restarts their relationship from scratch in a scrappy, rushed reworking of the classic scene from 'Feed the Kitty' in which the characters first meet. At this early stage in 'Cat Feud', it is clear that this dog is Marc Anthony only in name. The wonderful facial expressions, gestures and moving warmth have all been drained away leaving us with a generic cartoon bulldog (he's even the wrong colour for Marc Anthony). The story then goes on to place the characters in a totally unsuitable scenario as Marc Anthony must stop an oblivious Pussyfoot from hurting himself on a building site and save him from a scraggly alley cat. Since Jones fails to sell the love-at-first-sight meeting this time round, 'Cat Feud' simply doesn't work. These are not the characters that all true cartoon fans so adore. What's more, they seem totally out of place against the limited-animation backgrounds (even after they've been uglied-up!), the script is unfocused and the gags are unfunny. How one of the greatest directors who ever lived managed to drain all the charm out of two of his most lovable characters is a mystery but 'Cat Feud' fails on absolutely every level and is best avoided at all costs.
