The cartoon itself is notable as a Looney Tunes cartoon, and its existence can be proven with the link that I have provided (its on Looney Tunes Golden Collection 3). Whether the article is well-written enough to stay is another matter, but probably shouldn't be deleted due to lack of verifiable sources. --Bugwitgrunt / scribbles 15:42, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for providing the source. I've got no problem with the removed proposed deletion notice, now the article has at least one reference. Sliggy 15:51, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
As mentioned in the article, the original short ends with the cat shooting himself in the head. This gag was done a year earlier in the Merrie Melodies adaptation of Dr. Seuss's Horton Hatches the Egg. It's on at least two DVD collections of Seuss cartoons, but the only link I found to the full video online also has that gag removed. It's my understanding (although further research is needed) that there are several others with this same gag. Was this a joke in the 40s that I'm too young to get?
