Storyline

To escape a bulldog, Sylvester Cat allows himself to be adopted by a little girl. The little girl turns out to be rougher than the bulldog, though in her case it is entirely out of love. She bathes him in a washing machine, feeds him sardines and liver made of mud, puts him in the refrigerator to hide him from her disapproving mother, thaws him out with an overhot electric blanket, and blows his facial fur off with a backfiring rocket. Sylvester prefers to go back to the dog. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The Greatest Terror
5 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Friz Freleng started his career in Kansas City with Walt Disney, and by the time he died almost three quarters of a century later, he had done almost everything in the field, including directing several Oscar-winning shorts. Yet, despite this, he never achieved the respect accorded directors like Chuck Jones, Tex Avery and Bob Clampett, because all he did was direct great cartoons, beautifully timed, with great gags. He also had a specialty in pure music cartoons like SKYSCRAPER SYMPHONY and PIGS IN A POLKA that are, I feel, among his best.

This is a very good Sylvester the Cat cartoon from his middle period, and if you look at it you might enjoy it a lot without noticing all the things he does to lift it out of the ordinary: the deadpan of the little girl who tortures Sylvester, the way he pauses occasionally to let the sound effects tell what is happening with a great payoff -- he does that with the washing machine sequence. Unless you look closely, you'll never see it. You'll simply enjoy it a heck of a lot.
