Storyline

A pudgy but tough-guy cat recruits Sylvester as his stooge to catch a mouse for his dinner, under the pretense of training Sylvester to be a champion mouser. Sylvester enters a warehouse and runs into the baby kangaroo, Hippety Hopper, and thinks, as usual, that Hippety is a giant mouse that must be fought.

Sunday, Monday, Hoppy Daze...
1 August 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I know that it's part of Sylvester's persona not to be bright enough to realize that Hippety Hopper is a kangaroo, but it still seems pretty dumb to go after an animal his size; hell, Sylvester can't catch Tweety or Speedy. In this case, a tough guy cat - actually, he looks like the bastard child of a cat and the Tasmanian Devil - hires Sylvester to catch mice. Sure enough, Sylvester comes across HH and repeatedly gets clobbered.

"Hoppy Daze" seems to me like a sort of place holder as the Warner Bros. animation department was approaching its end. But it's still a pretty neat cartoon. Far from the greatest one, but OK. And I really like the noise that HH makes at the end; you could say that he was hop-rodding.
