Storyline

Sylvester Cat slips when making a grab for Tweety Bird in Granny's flat, and falls dazed to the floor as one of Tweety's feathers lands in his mouth. Tweety runs off. Sylvester comes to and finds the feather lodged between his lips. He thinks he has swallowed and killed Tweety and suffers terrible remorse as an Alfred Hitchcock-like voice-over chides him for his "crime". Sylvester cracks, runs into the streets confessing, and returns to Granny's place, where he finds he didn't eat Tweety after all. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Alfred Hitch-cat presents
1 October 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I've known for years that the people behind the classic Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons liked to spoof the popular culture of the era, but I never would have guessed that they made a cartoon parodying "Alfred Hitchcock Presents". Friz Freleng's "The Last Hungry Cat" is it. It starts with a bear entering an outline and explaining what's about to happen. Then comes the story. After Sylvester sneaks into Tweety's room and through a mix-up mistakenly thinks that he's eaten the little guy, he proceeds to go about his normal life. Except that he hears on TV that the police are looking for a killer known as The Cat, and everything reminds him of this. A Hitchcock movie indeed! So, while it is true that the Looney Tunes era was winding down by 1961, they still managed to turn out some good ones towards the end. They knew how to have just the right amount of twisted sensibility without degenerating into bad taste. This is one that you should like. And also watch Hitch's "Blackmail" to get a good feeling for what this cartoon portrays.
