My favorite scene in this cartoon is the part where Dodsworth uses a huge pole to propel the kitten up to the tree. The woodpecker puts a bottle of nitroglycerin onto the pole and drills 1/2 of the pole, resulting in the bottle falling down. Dodsworth puts a blindfold on and lights a cigarette.

Then the nitroglycerin blows up on Dodsworth which results in Dodsworth being on fire (the scene shows Dodsworth frantically trying to extinguish the flames a la Sylvester in "Ain't She Tweet")

This cartoon was in heavy rotation when Nickelodeon aired The Looney Tunes cartoons during 1988-97?
