Cat on the Flying Trapeze

The generic Tex Avery cat swings from a trapeze to try to kill a cuckoo bird in The Cuckoo Clock (1950). He swings over twice and misses. Then comes the third attempt.

Walt Clinton, Grant Simmons and Mike Lah are the animators, with Johnny Johnsen painting the backgrounds and Scott Bradley (no doubt unhappily) supplying the old chestnut “Man on the Flying Trapeze” on the soundtrack.
