The cartoon delivers on its title. It’s called “Puss N’ Booty.”
Yup. There’s a puss. And a booty.
This 1943 Warners cartoon features more of Frank Tashlin’s experimentation with layouts. The evil cat slinks toward the camera in perspective and his body fills the whole frame. There’s a quick cut to the cat creeping away in perspective and then sitting down, watching the bird in the distance.
Tashlin fills the cartoon with jagged camera work and low angles, as if parts of the film are shot at the cat’s level. And there’s the angular, deco-style house exterior and interiors that Tashlin loved, apparently drawn by Dick Thomas.
Cal Dalton gets the sole animation credit. Izzy Ellis and Art Davis would have been in the unit as well. Dave Hilberman worked with Tashlin and I’ll leave it to the experts to definitively say he did the layouts on this cartoon.
