Synopsis: A new installment of Disney’s original Fantasia with animated segments set to classical music.
Cartoon Cat: In the Al Hirschfeld-inspired segment set to George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, we see a man named Duke waking up late and hurrying to get dressed and get to work. Outside of the building a milkman is delivering bottles to the front step. A black and white cat is sitting on the garbage man when the milkman’s horse and cart pull up.
The cat hides and peeks out as the milkman deposits the bottles.
The cat then watches the milkman drive away.
The cat approaches the bottles and then pushes down on the top of one, finally popping it loose and splattering milk everywhere.
The cat is happily lapping up milk when Duke rushes out of the building and swooshes by, spinning the cat into the bottle.
Final Mewsings: Cats would prefer to drink their morning milk in leisure.
