It's Hummer Time

It's Hummer Time is a 1950 Looney Tunes short directed by Robert McKimson.


A hummingbird is chased back and forth by a Tuxedo cat. Eventually the bird finds itself in the position of a sleeping Bulldog, who punishes the cat every time he tries to hurt the bird.

The punishments the cat received are:

  • The Fence - The bulldog pulled the tuxedo cat through a hole in the fence.
  • Happy Birthday - The tuxedo cat was hit with a birthday cake with dynamite sticks instead of candles.
  • The Rain Pipe - The tuxedo cat gets pulled through a rain pipe (ala The Fence), and then he hits it with a bat.
  • The Thinker - The tuxedo cat got thrown into a cement mixing machine and got turned into a mock-up of The Thinker.
  • The Works - This chronicles every punishment used (aside from Happy Birthday). The hummingbird took advantage of that and tied the tuxedo cat & bulldog together, having both of them go through everything. When they ended up in the cement mixer, the hummingbird turned them into statues for a bird bath.



  • A followup cartoon called "Early to Bet" was created around a year later.
