A Mouse! A Dog!

One of my favourite gags in Tex Avery’s The Three Little Pups is how a hand puppet of a cat being worn by the southern wolf takes on a life of its own when it sees a mouse (a wind-up variety let loose by Droopy).

Then the “cat” sees a dog.

Heck Allen insisted he did very little to obtain a story credit on Avery’s cartoons but we’ll mention him here nonetheless. If nothing else, he encouraged Avery to spew forth with his nutty humour.

    1. I don't think Vera Ohman got nearly as stylised at Hanna-Barbera as she did in this cartoon, though I can think of some fences that come close (by other artists).
