"Two's a Crowd"
Time for the first entry in the Chuck Jones' Claude Cat VS Frisky Puppy trilogy.
I love how Claude tris subtle ways to get rid of the dog and then decides to just kill him chasing him around the house with an axe and with an homicidal look in his eyes.
Betwen this and "No Barking" there's one of the most boring cartoons Jones ever made. Hardly a Jones after 1948 was a miss but that was the case.
Anyway let's watch this, a very good entry that also shows how Jones' unit had the best animators!

"I'll tell those sheep I love 'em like brothers the rats!"
Both Frank Young and Thad had recently delighted us with a series of ultra-rare comic stories starring beloved unfamous Famous characters Hector the Rooster and Blackie the Lamb so I guess it's my turn.
The choice? Why, what question! A story with Blackie and Wolfie, what else?
Many poses reminds me of the early Blackie and Wolfie shorts and in fact the story was drawn by Tom Golden, a Famous animator.
