|A Kiddies Kitty|
A Kiddies Kitty is a 1955 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng and written by Warren Foster. Sara Berner voices Suzanne's Mom, Mel Blanc voices Sylvester, TV Announcer and Hector the Bulldog, and Lucille Bliss voices Suzanne.
Hoping to escape a bulldog, Sylvester willingly lets himself be adopted by a girl. Much to his surprise the girl is worse than a bulldog, despite it being out of love. She bathes him in a washing machine, gives him sardines and liver made out of mud, puts him in the refrigerator so her mother doesn't find out about him, then takes him out with an electric blanket that overheats, and blows facial fur off him with a rocket. At the end of all of it, Sylvester thinks he'd be better off with the bulldog.
This was the last Sylvester cartoon to be reissued as a "Blue Ribbon" as it was reissued on August 15, 1964. The Vitaphone release "title card" and "rings" also serve as the ending, replacing the 1955-56 green rings.
When this cartoon aired on The WB, the scene in which Sylvester is thrown into a washing machine by Suzanne and comes out of the machine as a big ball of fur is cut. A similar scene from A Waggily Tale is also cut when shown on the same channel.
