A Tyerd Cat

A cat running from an ordinary mouse? That’s the animation that opens the Mighty Mouse cartoon A Cat’s Tale (1951). It may be an ordinary mouse, but the animation’s no ordinary animation. Some random (albeit fuzzy) frames.

Jim Tyer’s animation is even crazier when the cat locks and bolts the door of his cave. One example.

Tyer never got screen credit. None of the animators did until Gene Deitch arrived toward the end of the decade.

There’s some mighty cross-promotion in this cartoon as several scenes feature Mighty Mouse comic books.
