Synopsis: Figaro the kitten awakens one morning full of spit and fire and ready to play with his pal Pluto.  Unfortunately Pluto is rolling in from a very long night and wants only to sleep.

Cinema Cat: Figaro first appeared in the full length animated film Pinocchio and was so popular he ended up starring in several short films, often with his more famous co-star Pluto.

This short is fun in that Figaro wakes up feisty and in the mood to scrap with his pal.  He’s confused to find that Pluto is not in his bed.

Still there’s only so much a dog can take and Figaro might have been a goner if Pluto’s sandman hadn’t stepped in again.
