How To Swallow A Kitten

The bulldog in Bad Luck Blackie swallows the little kitten. And then swallows him again. Yes, the gag is impossible. That’s what makes it funny (along with Tex Avery’s fast pacing).

Louie Schmitt was still in the Avery unit when this cartoon was made, along with Preston Blair, Walt Clinton and Grant Simmons. Schmitt and Blair would soon leave and Mike Lah and Bobe Cannon would be placed in the unit. It was released January 22, 1949.
