A Gruesome Twosome
|← Birdy and the Beast||Tweety Cartoons||Tweetie Pie →|
PlotThe cartoon opens up with two cats (a couple) talking/singing in meows (set to the tune of the 1909 pop-tune, Me-ow). Then we see a red cat (a caricature of Jimmy Durante) who hits a yellow cat talking to the female cat with a frying pan. Then the red cat tries to get the girl to kiss him. As he tries to kiss her, out of nowhere an insane dog (who admits that he "[doesn't] actually belong in this picture") pops up and kisses
- This is Tweety's final appearance without feathers.
- The cartoon was eventually censored because the durante cat says “here comes that naked genius” (at 6’35”). Apparently, censors did not like the implied nudity.
- The Ren and Stimpy Show creator John Kricfalusi combined the two cats in this short to create Stimpy with the Jimmy Durante cat's coloring and nose and the stupid one's girth and personality.
