Yes, The Post

“Not ‘The Gezundheit!’” “Not ‘William Tell!’” “Not ‘Roll Out the Barrel!’” You probably have a favourite amongst the penalties inflicted on Bob McKimson’s generic cat in a couple of cartoons involving a bulldog. One is “Early To Bet,” featuring the Gambling Bug (played by Stan Freberg).

Here are a few frames (the drawings were used more than once) of the bug attacking the cat and the cat’s reaction.

Emery Hawkins, Rod Scribner, Charles McKimson and Phil De Lara receive the animation credits.
