Officer Pooch is a 1941 short cartoon produced by Fred Quimby, directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera and distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The cartoon is mostly done in pantomime.

Plot[edit]

A canine officer (modeled after the Keystone Kops) is called out to rescue a kitten, harassed by an aggressive bulldog. He continues to tangle with the situation, then finds a basket full of kittens. He carries the basket into an alley where he runs into a whole pack of dogs. They chase him and the kittens up a tree, stranding them.


Availability[edit]

The cartoon is available on the "Droopy and Company" videotape. It is also included as an extra on the DVD of the feature film The Big Store.
