Puss N Booty - 1943 - Looney Tunes

Puss n' Booty is a 1943 Looney Tunes short directed by Frank Tashlin.


The title is a pun on the story "Puss in Boots", although the cartoon itself has nothing to do with it.


An unnamed woman wonders why her little pet birds keep disappearing. Rudolph the cat knows, but other than burping feathers, he's not saying. But it looks like he's met his match when the woman orders another bird from the pet shop: a little yellow canary named "Petey".



  • This is notable for being the last black-and-white cartoon Warner Bros. ever made.
  • This is the latest Warner Bros cartoon to have fallen into the public domain, as all cartoons afterward are currently under copyright.
  • This cartoon may have inspired the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons created in 1947 and beyond.
  • The plot of this cartoon contains similarities to the cartoon "I Taw a Putty Tat", directed by Friz Freleng and released almost four years later.
  • The 1990 computer-colorized version replaces the 1939-43 LT ending card with the 1937-39 one, but keeps the original audio playing over it.
  • This was one of the few black-and-white cartoons from the Sunset Productions/Guild Films package to air on Cartoon Network that still aired with a redrawn-colorized print regularly. Others included "Wholly Smoke", "Jeepers Creepers", "Porky's Bear Facts", "Porky's Pooch", and "Daffy's Southern Exposure".
