Quotes

Sylvester: [singing inside the television] Pussy Kins Cat Food tastes real good. Satisfies cats like a cat food shuold. Hardens their muscles, softens their fur. Pussy Kins Cat Food makes them purr.
[the lady throws Sylvester out through the window, breaking it in the process, and he hits a tree with his head, the can of cat food then bounces off his head]
Sylvester: Are you getting more cat food lately, but enjoying it less?

Funny little short
3 January 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sylvester and his son live in the city dump, barely scraping a living off the bones and dregs that others throw away. Eager to get them both a better live, his son sets out to find a home - something that is easy for a cute little kitten like him but not so easy as mangy old Sylvester.

The basic plot offers no great potential, and the film just stutter until Jnr gets up to go and find a home, although there are some good moments in this setting up stage. Once in the home Sylvester finds himself on the losing end of a battle to get into the home with his son when the owner clearly only wants a little cute kitten and not a big cat. While it isn't hilarious, it is different enough and has enough imagination to do a good job.

Sylvester and son are both good characters and do good work here. The woman in the house is unpleasant both to listen to and look at, but I think that was the point! The three work well together, although it is hard not to feel sorry for Sylvester - I'd rather take in the cute kitten as well! But what sort of a son is Jnr who doesn't just accept that this home won't have them and try the next door (having tried all of one so far!)

Overall a different little cartoon that is enjoyable without being hilarious and has a good punchline at the end.
