Synopsis: Belling the cat is easy, but so is belling the mice.

Comments: The credits read like someone made them up. Two Columbia's in a row (based on current numbering) with text openings. Plus shadows in this one. Lots of cigars in Columbia cartoons. Cat feels like it doesn't have a nose, tho it does. Odd look on the Hollywood style collar. Wow, those tears are just drip drip drip. The cat wants a key to a combo padlock. It just kinda ends, with no resolution, not much building, etc.

This cartoon marks the 50% point, at least for the theatrical cartoons on the existing list. I haven't actually run the numbers including the propaganda shorts; the WB government shorts seem weighted late in the year, but the Disney government shorts may be weighted earlier in the year.
