Title: Fin'N Catty
Date: 10/23/43 (10/9 in BoxOffice?)
Credits: - (but Chuck Jones)
Series: Merrie Melodies (Blue Ribbon re-release)
Running time (of viewed version): 6:27
Commercial DVD Availability: Old Acquaintance (I assume but do not know that the disc in each of the following has the short; technically I am usually not sure the versions definitely have the shorts, but it's usually easier to assumethe reviews are correct as there are usually fewer releases: Bette Davis Colleciton v 2, TCM Collection, stand alone dvd )
Synopsis: Cat vs water, fish vs cat.
Comments: Narrator. Looming cat head. Pastel backgrounds, no black lines. Water gun in the eye. Wide cheeks. Crazy eyes and angles. Fairly fast cutting. Fish with hat. Fish visible in the cat tail. Water FX. Sucking cat looks a bit like Chuck Jones Tom of Tom and Jerry.
Not the only cartoon with a hanging "n" in its title this year; there's also Fin n' Catty. (edit: er, I mean, Seein' Red White 'n' Blue, Woodpeckin', No Mutton fer Nuttin')
