There appears to be no continuity in the position of the full moon. In both the beginning and the end of the show, the moon was just barely above the ocean horizon, and in other parts, it was shown to be slightly higher. See more »

Blanc & Butler Help Provide A Real Classic
11 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mel Blanc and Daws Butler - two Hall-Of-Fame voices - combine their talents to give us this battle of the felines over possession of one mouse.

Sylvester (Blanc) and Sam (Butler) are two waterfront cats browsing through the garbage cans on the pier when they get a little mouse. The story from that point is the paranoia and mistrust these two guys have for each other. Neither is willing to share and both try every trick in the book to hide the fact they have the mouse. (It keeps changing hands, er paws.)

The huge moon and beautiful nighttime artwork in here on the water with his big house is fantastic. For the visuals alone, this is a good cartoon but listening to the accents and funny voices of these two geniuses doing these characters makes elevates this from very good to excellent.
