Aesop’s Fables Studio
Synopsis: A cat leads a cushy life while bossing a mouse servant around.
Cartoon Cat: Paul Terry’s characters based around Farmer Al Falfa return in this third entry in the Aesop’s Fables shorts. The black cat (which is sometimes known as Thomas) saunters through this short having things mostly his way, such as when he bosses his mouse servant to push his car.
Later he suggests the mouse be used as bait to catch some fish, which the mouse amazingly agrees to enthusiastically.
After eating, the cat goes golfing and ends up using the mouse as a tee, causing the mouse to lose his head several times.
Next the cat decides to serenade a female cat but that doesn’t work out as planned. Farmer Alfalfa even makes a brief appearance to throw the moon at the cat.
Finally the cat devises a trap for some mice which works very well until one mouse becomes wise.
Final Mewsings: Who knew that a cat’s life involved driving cars and playing golf?
