Cat Feud (1958)

Cat Feud is a 1958 Merrie Melodies short directed by Chuck Jones.


The title is a play on "cat food," and the feud or fight between the cat and dog.


Marc Anthony is a bulldog working at a construction site. He finds a kitten named Pussyfoot, whom he gives a wiener to. A hungry cat (Claude) sees Pussyfoot and attempts to take the wiener away from her. Attempting to defend the kitten, Marc Anthony fights the cat on the steal beams of a construction building.

Television Airings





  • Versions of this cartoon that aired on ABC's The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show:[2]
    • Replaced the scene of Marc Anthony repeatedly punching the alley cat in the face with a still shot of Pussyfoot the kitten sleeping.
    • Shortened the part where the alley cat makes Marc Anthony hit himself on the head with the I-beam he's clinging to.


  • Unlike other cartoons, Marc Anthony has grey fur in this cartoon (much like Hector and Spike) instead of brown fur as in other appearances. Marc Anthony would have grey fur again in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
  • Unlike the previous shorts "Kiss Me Cat" and "Feline Frame-Up", this cartoon presumes that both Marc Anthony and Pussyfoot have never met before now. Also, Marc Anthony has a much fiercer personality than in his previous shorts.
  • The start of this cartoon is very similar to "Feed the Kitty", the first time Marc Anthony and Pussyfoot first appeared together.
