Not one of Claude's better days, I'd imagine.
This is my favorite of the shorts starring Marc Anthony, though one of the others, Cat Feud, is a better cartoon. Claude Cat is thoroughly unlikeable in this one. He's deceitful, disgraceful and devious and those are his good qualities! Marc Anthony (clearly a dog's equivalent to Prince Valiant) wins out for the cause and for Truth, Justice and the American Way (oops, wrong hero) and the dim bulb that is the human "master" finally realizes that Claude's been playing him like a pipe organ in church. Marc Anthony's final ruse to get inside is priceless, as are Claude's facial expressions as the plot unfolds. The ending is marvelous and Claude's exit line is perfect. Well worth tracking down and watching. Most recommended.
