I've seen better, but this one's still pretty funny.
12 May 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" is one of the easiest stories to play with; the Termite Terrace crowd had already done so with "Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears". "Goldimouse and the Three Cats" casts Sylvester as the patriarch of a feline household. He and his wife both have porridge the wrong temperature, while their spoiled brat son - actually identified as "Spoiled Brat" - won't eat his. So, this brood belonging to the family Felidae* goes out for a walk (on a bridge full of loose boards; uh oh!), and sure enough, a mouse enters their house and screws things up. I shouldn't have to tell you what sorts of things happen to Sylvester when he tries to catch the playful rodent, but I will note that dynamite is involved (they loved their TNT, didn't they?).

Yes, it's sort of a predictable cartoon. What's really neat is what I observe now that I'm old enough to understand it: the shelter. I assume that it was an allusion to Cold War-era bomb shelters (this cartoon came out during that period).

So, it's not a great cartoon - probably Friz Freleng's greatest Sylvester cartoon was "Birds Anonymous" - but still worth seeing.

*Felidae is the taxonomic family to which cats belong.
