That Cat Can Play!

Another gag from “Bad Luck Blackie”...

Kitten tries to escape from the menacing bulldog but runs down a back lane instead.

Kitten is cornered. He blows the whistle.

Black cat crosses the bulldog’s path.

Instant bad luck. Piano falls on bulldog.

Kitten plays the dog’s teeth like a piano. Look at the expressions on the kitten. Tex Avery and his animators were masters.

The kitten plays a quick, amateur version of “Yankee Doodle Dandy.” One wonders if Scott Bradley would have preferred Chopin or something else a little grander.
