"I have a feeling that a disaster is about to happen"
19 July 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Sylvester and his son watch a TV show about fishing, then go fishing themselves -- at the aquarium. The daddy cat's efforts to catch a fish are not successful.

With the rise of television cartoons, the theatrical market was rapidly drying up and inflation was eating away at the budgets. Although director McKimson tries to compensate with simplified character design and limited animation, the pep was gone from the series.

While certainly watchable, even in this reduced state, thanks to a decent script by David Detiege, the handwriting was on the wall. Warners would soon close the cartoon department an although there would be erratic revivals for the next few years, the era of classic animation at the studio would end.
