Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
It's the Catfields versus The McHounds in this parody of the famous mountain feud of the Hatfields and McCoys. One family lives on the Cat-Skill Mts. while the other is across the way on the Adir-Hound-Act Mts. Once the rooster crows, signaling "Round 362" in the feud, the firing starts.
Even the trees are yelling at each other: the pussy willows and dogwoods. Yes, lots of puns and laughs in this animated short as the two groups fight it out like, well, cats and dogs!
Then, the rooster announces the new school marm is comin' round the mountain (via train) so the action starts and - I am not kidding - the cartoons turns into a sing-along with a bouncing ball following all the lyrics to the title song! After that comes even a stranger ending.
Overall, this is a bizarre but very intriguing cartoon.
