Puss in Boots (1934)

The Cartoons That Time Forget Volume 1 DVD

Celebrity Productions
Directed by:
 Ub Iwerks

Synopsis: A cat in boots is grateful when a young man saves his kittens, so he helps him to rescue a princess from an ogre.

Cartoon Cat: It’s not clear why this Puss is wearing boots but like other versions of the tale he is a very resourceful cat and quite clever.

Cat Burglars (Scene Stealers):  It’s Puss’ three little kittens which steal the show, however, tumbling about fighting and singing and being just generally adorable.

The music in this piece (by Carl Stalling) is also catchy, especially when the meows are sung by some pussy willows!

As one might expect Puss saves the day by out-thinking the ogre much the same as in the original story.  All in all this is a very cute revamped version.

Final Mewsings: You don’t want kittens playing tic tac toe in your pants!
