Cat Out of the Bag Alert!  This review contains some spoilers for this film!

Synopsis: A cat sits on a wall and demands to be fed, but will he conform when exposed to American commercialism?

Cartoon Cat: The cat in question is a gray cat who is fed milk by an entity, meowing every time his bowl is empty.

Kitty Carnage Warning!  After going through the milk and continuing to cry, the arm hits the cat over the head with a bottle. This causes another entity to come in and supposedly fight for the protection of the cat.

The entity then tries to entice the cat by showing him a sexy ad for soda on the television.

This is a very funny political cartoon which is as every bit relevant today as it was when it was made by Brasilian animator Marcos Magalhães in 1981. Watch all the way to the end for some funny twists!

Final Mewsings: Cats are picky to a point.
