Stuff cotton in your ears first
20 July 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is the final short to feature Hippety Hopper and Sylvester, Jr. in the classic era. It's a clip show with a mentally unbalanced Sylvester seeing a cat psychiatrist because he's terrified Hopper is out to get him. This thin premise is the excuse to flash back to a few Sylvester & Hippety Hopper cartoons from the past. As was usually the case with these types of cartoons, the old clips are the best parts. The new stuff is crudely drawn and unimpressive. Mel Blanc does what he can with the voices but he's given little to work with. The worst part of it all is the music, a bizarre mishmash of new music from Bill Lava, old music from Carl Stalling, and stock music from Philip Green. It's not pleasant to listen to at all. In fact, in some places the different scores are overlapping and it's enough to make your ears hurt. Also the sound effects in spots is really loud and obnoxious. It's not worth a look unless you are a Sylvester completist or someone who likes pain.
