Let's Play Radio

Some frames from “Dough Ray Me-ow,” a fun cartoon by Art Davis and his unit at Warner Bros.

Louie the parrot tries to kill Heathcliff the dopey cat by electrocuting him with wires placed in his ears while playing a game called “Radio.” All Heathcliff does is tune in some stations. Louie decides the game actually works and he wants to play it. You know what’ll happen.

Don Williams, Emery Hawkins, Bill Melendez and Basil Davidovich are the credited animators.


  1. Of course, this scene was cut from later TV showings, for obvious reasons.

    Always wondered about the "Eat at Joe's" gag in this and other WB cartoons... was there an actual restaurant called Joe's somewhere in Burbank?

    1. No that I've been able to discover.
      Seems to me "Eat at Joes" wasn't a gag restricted to cartoons.
      (Avery's "Jerky Turkey" probably did the best one).
