No People!

“No people! No noise! No nothin’!!”, says The Cat That Hated People (from the cartoon of the same name). He gestures as he expounds on his new-found contentment. Here are some of the drawings. Tex Avery had some of the drawings exposed on twos, others on ones. Some of the in-betweens are evenly spaced out, while others make the action a bit jerky, which emphasizes the arm movements better.

The cartoon is Avery’s great patriotic allegory. In the end, the cat prefers the abuse he gets in the good ol’ USA than abuse in some incomprehensible foreign place because, by God, it’s America!

Walt Clinton, Grant Simmons, Louie Schmitt and Bill Shull are the credited animators.
