Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: A goldfish finds himself being chased by a cat who hates water.
Cartoon Cat: The black and white cat in this short is designed like other Looney Tunes cats but appears to be a one-time character with no name. His only desire is to eat the goldfish but he has a morbid fear of water.
Every time the cat gets wet in this short (and it is many) he runs into the kitchen to grab a paper towel and wipe himself off.
The cat tries many different ploys to try to get the fish, including dangling a worm in front of the bowl.
At one point the cat faints and the fish revives him with a small bucket of water. Of course this leads to another run into the kitchen but the goldfish has placed a sheet of fly paper on the paper towel roll. Hilarity ensues, of course, as the cat struggles with the fly paper.
Catching the fish out of his bowl, the cat wears him down and almost gets a chance to eat him.
Eventually the goldfish runs into the shower and fills it up and the cat jumps in, not realizing he is completely underwater.
As it turns out the cat likes water and the goldfish continues to hate the cat who steals his bowl.
Final Mewsings: Cats are not known to be environmentally conscious about the overuse of paper towels.
