A large bulldog named Spike, egged on by his little sidekick Chester, repeatedly attempts to beat up Sylvester. Unfortunately for Spike, the cat he thinks is Sylvester hiding behind some boxes in an alley is really a black panther escaped from the zoo. Fun short from Friz Freleng. Sylvester is the most well-known character in this one but the stars are really Spike and Chester. Sylvester spends most of the short cowering in a garbage can and has barely any lines. Spike and Chester are a funny pair that I believe only appeared in one other cartoon. Nice animation with well-drawn characters and backgrounds. Lovely colors are a plus. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and Stan Freberg. Lively music from Carl Stalling. It's a funny short with likable characters and a great ending.
