The Cat's Tale is a 1941 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng.

Plot

A frustrated mouse gets tired of being chased, so he confronts the cowardly cat and orders him to stop. He convinces the cat to tell dog Spike to quit chasing him as well. Mayhem ensues when understandings can't be reached. The cat goes to visit the dog to tell him that all the chasing should stop, but ends up dumping the dog's bowl on his head. The dog chases the cat, who starts chasing the mouse again.

Notes/Goofs

  • This cartoon has a special ending cue, unlike other Merrie Melodies cartoon shorts of the period. However, this special ending cue is obliterated in the 1995 European Turner "dubbed version", which replaces the original ending cue with the 1941-1955 Merrie Melodies ending music cue.
  • Despite this cartoon having a special ending cue, it is also known to have a big goof in it's music cue with the special ending music cue and the 1940-1941 theme mixed together possibly a giltched prototype variant.
