Storyline

A rough and tough bulldog named Spike sets out with his admirer, a small dog named Chester, to rough up a cat. They encounter Sylvester and chase him into a junkyard, where a black panther that escaped from a zoo just happens to be hiding out. Every time Spike goes into the junkyard to thrash Sylvester, he is clawed into pieces by the panther, which he, in a dark maze of crates, thinks is Sylvester. Chester has no problem pummelling Sylvester before Spike's eyes, which convinces Spike that Chester must be tougher than him. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

"Spike is my hero!"
12 October 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

A large bulldog named Spike, egged on by his little sidekick Chester, repeatedly attempts to beat up Sylvester. Unfortunately for Spike, the cat he thinks is Sylvester hiding behind some boxes in an alley is really a black panther escaped from the zoo. Fun short from Friz Freleng. Sylvester is the most well-known character in this one but the stars are really Spike and Chester. Sylvester spends most of the short cowering in a garbage can and has barely any lines. Spike and Chester are a funny pair that I believe only appeared in one other cartoon. Nice animation with well-drawn characters and backgrounds. Lovely colors are a plus. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and Stan Freberg. Lively music from Carl Stalling. It's a funny short with likable characters and a great ending.
