The Cat Came Back

 (7)7.58min1988ALL
This hilarious animated short is based on the century-old folk song of the same name. Old Mr. Johnson makes increasingly manic attempts to rid himself of a little yellow cat that just won't stay away. Oscar nominee!

Pros: Seen this multiple times and it never gets old; there's a good reason why it's on the 50 Greatest Cartoons book
Cons: Please add my favorite NFB short The Big Snit next time

The music is wonderful and a catchy tune. This is a very colorful film. The man reminds me of Homer Bedlow from Petticoat Junction. The cat is adorable. Some people are just mishuginah.

5.0 out of 5 starsVery funny Oscar-nominated short!
This Canadian animated short is very funny. Nominated for the Oscar but lost to Pixar's then-groundbreaking Tin Toy. This, however could have easily won the award.
