Storyline

Banjo is a curious and rebellious kitten who is always getting into trouble. When he decides to jump off a roof of a chicken coup to see if he can land on his feet, he is ordered to "fetch a switch". Thinking his parents wouldn't care if he gets hurt, he hitches a ride on a feed truck, all the way to Salt Lake City. After he finds the excitement of the city, he soon finds it cold and lonely and wishes to be home. With the help of stray cat Crazy Legs and a trio of singing cat girls, he finds the truck and returns home. Written by jcsmarchesi

Quotes

Crazy Legs: [singing] I'll stick with you, kid, you stick with me. Together we'll overcome adversity. And old man trouble will have to let you be, 'cause you're gonna come out smilin' if you stick with me.
Zazu: [Enters stage as crowd cheers and starts singing] Safety in number, we always work things out. We can't be too careful, there's danger all about. So look 'round each corner, and under bushes too. There could be a prowler who's waiting there for you.
Banjo: Oh no, Crazy, what'll I do?
Crazy Legs: What'll you do? I'll tell you...

At Last I found it!
8 January 2001 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

When I was growing up my parents had made me a video with loads of cartoons on taped from the TV. Of all the Bugs Bunny and Road Runner cartoons Banjo has always stuck in my mind. Perhaps the accessibility of the Warner cartoons has deteriorated my fond memories of them, but after 15 years I have found proof that this cartoon existed.

All I remember is a cat called Banjo who does something naughty so his father beats him and he runs off to Salt Lake City to live with some showgirls. When I told that synopsis to my friends they really didn't know what I was talking about.

After a bored afternoon it suddenly dawned on my to try the IMDB, low and behold I found Banjo. I've now ordered the VHS - I hope that it is as good as I remembered.
