Merrie Melodies The Mouse Merized Cat

The Mouse-Merized Cat is a 1946 Merrie Melodies short directed by Robert McKimson.


Babbit hypnotizes Catstello who refuses but fails and finds himself acting like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Rochester (Jack Benny's sidekick), and then a chicken, and a dog. Babbit hypnotizes him back, but Castello decides to hypnotize both of them into a cowboy and a horse, so he can enjoy their house in peace.




  • The WB shortened the scene of Babbit trying to hypnotize Catstello so the viewers couldn't see Babbit slapping Catstello in the face several times.[citation needed|date=]

  • Both Cartoon Network and The WB cut the scene of Babbit hypnotizing Catstello to act like Rochester receiving a telephone call from Jack Benny (though there was a time in the late 2000s when Cartoon Network aired this scene uncensored. Whether this was a mistake or a sign that their censors were lightening up on allowing objectionable content isn't known).[1]
