Miniature Dachshund Pups (1957)

British Pathé

Synopsis: Newsreel footage shows miniature dachshund pups being groomed and fed in a country inn.

Reality Cats: This footage was taken at a country inn in Dunsmore, Buckinghamshire, England where the proprietors, Ted and Georgina Fox, are walking their dachshunds. As they approach the front door of the inn, a tuxedo cat can be seen sitting in front.

The focus of the piece is of course on the dogs, especially two miniature dachshund pups named Samson and Delilah. But several shots of this same cat, plus one black cat (likely residents of the inn) are also shown, although no mention of them is made.

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

Synopsis: In this Silly Symphony, a city mouse invites his country cousin to leave the sticks and experience high class.

Cartoon Cat: The sophisticated city mouse introduces his cousin to the riches of an extravagant dining table. But the country mouse imbibes in a glass of champagne. After making a racket, the two mice run away only to encounter a cat sleeping nearby.

Feeling unwarranted bravado thanks to the alcohol, the country mouse proceeds to walk right up to the cat and kick him in the behind. The city mouse bolts for his hole and shuts a door behind him, literally cutting off his country cousin.

The cat chases after the country mouse, who darts into an electrical socket. The poor cat gets quite a shock.

The cat then chases the country mouse out the window where the latter escapes down a drain pipe.

Final Mewsings: City cats apparently don’t know how to deal with drunk country mice.
