The House-Cat (Felis Vulgaris) is a charming cartoon from David Hand in England
17 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this charming Animaland cartoon from producer David Hand on Daily Motion. It follows a little kitten as he imagines a window shade pulley as a mouse, a little man, and a snake, each of which he chases and fails to catch. Then we follow him several months later as an adult as he sees a female feline that catches his fancy. He then serenades her with a song which, in his mind, is a perfect chorus of him and some fellow members singing "meow" in perfect harmony! At this point, the lady is kidnapped by another, and meaner, pussycat. When he confronts him, all his lives up to 8 1/2 start going to heaven but the last one whistles the others to come back and fight which they do defeating the bad cat! As the female comes back to the nearly defeated cat, four young kittens come forward and worship at his alter. The cat motions to his lady if they're his. She nods approvingly. Then she winks at us as the short ends...Plenty of charm and humor abounds in this cartoon which isn't surprising since Mr. Hand had previously worked for Walt Disney. This short was one of several that he made for the J. Arthur Rank Organisation in England. Like I said, this was on Daily Motion as linked from the Cartoons, Model Sheets, and Stuff blog.
