One of Chuck Jones' Best

"Feed the Kitty" ranks as one of the sweetest and funniest cartoons of all time. Marc Anthony's facial expressions are priceless and perfect throughout (especially the "Who, Me?" look he gives his owner in the kitchen when she states "You look very guilty")- if they gave Oscars for animated characters, he'd take Best Actor.

In the great Chuck Jones documentary "Extremes & Inbetweens" Steven Spielberg called "Froggy Evening" the "Citizen Kane of the animated short," and he's right (in the same documentary, Leonard Matlin merely calls it "as perfect a film as I ever hope to see"). Jones vividly directs this parable of greed, and achieves results during the cartoon's 7-minute running time most directors would strain (and fail) to attain in a feature-length film. Like most of Jones' classics, the story remains fresh no matter how many times you see it.

Truly Terrifying

Reviewed by: slc2466, April 14, 2003

I saw this film when I was ten, and it still ranks as the five most frightening minutes I've ever spent in a movie theater- I had nightmares for years afterwards envisioning the scene wherein the old man jumps up in bed and crys out "NO!" just before he's murdered. I can see why the film was rated "X" by the British censors, as it is definitely NOT for children or the faint-hearted (I can only imagine how much the horror would increase if the cartoon was shown in its original 3-D version). I finally was able to see the film again recently on a Columbia cartoon complilation video; as an adult, I still find the short deeply disturbing, but now I can appreciate the masterful direction (by Ted Parmalee, design and color by Paul Julian), the vividly effective animation by Pat Matthews, the unnerving musical score by Boris Kremenliev and, of course, the haunting, unforgettable narration by James Mason. If you can handle the very large suspense factor, I'd highly recommend watching this brilliant, Oscar-nominated 1953 UPA cartoon- just don't watch it alone or with an unbalanced boarder or roommate.
