The Aristo-cat is a 1943 Merrie Melodies short directed by Chuck Jones.


Meadows, a butler is tired of the constant practical jokes of the family cat, Pussy, so much that he decides to quit his own job. The cat doesn't know what a mouse looks like, so when Hubie and Bertie show up, he gets terrified. At the end, the main problem was revealed to be a dream.



  • It features the debut of Hubie and Bertie. The short also contains an early prototype version of who would later be known as Claude Cat.
  • The cartoon was re-released to theaters under the Blue Ribbon program on November 11, 1950. As a result, the original credits and title card were scrapped off.
