The Night Watchman is a Merrie Melodies cartoon released to theaters on November 19, 1938. This short was the very first film directed by a then-credited Chuck Jones after he was promoted from an animator (where he was under Fred Avery and Robert Clampett's units).
A watchman gets sick, so his son is enlisted to watch the kitchen. When the gangland-style rats find out that he's the one on duty, they try to take over.
The Night Watchman is available on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 4 Disc 4.
