Gabriel Churchkitten is one of the Famous StudiosNoveltoons that sticks in my memory, though I have not seen it in half a century. As a Presbyterian active in my church, and who formerly taught Sunday School, I am thankful that there was no pastor like Parson Peaseporridge; the Session would not want the like of HIM! I recall the opening by either Gabriel Churchkitten or Peter Churchmouse, the complaint that Parson Peaseporridge had forgotten to feed them again! The problem was that Peaseporridge was a sleepwalker who muttered "Gabriel Churchkitten, Peter Churchmouse" in his sleep and DRANK Gabriel's milk and ATE Peter's cheese! One may wonder how Peaseporridge acted toward his PARISHONERS! (There was no clue about that in the cartoon.) Mercifully, the matter was righted. One legacy of this cartoon was that in a visionary nation that has ever existed in my creative imagination, there was a municipality called Church Kitten (or was it Church Cat?), and one called Church Mouse. Whatever the case, this cartoon was a RIOT, gave me a belly full of laughs!
