Feline Frame-Up is an animated short film in the Looney Tunes series produced by Warner Bros. Cartoons, Inc and released on February 13, 1954.

It features Claude Cat and Marc Anthony in a battle of brawn vs. brains, with the little black kitten Pussyfoot caught in the middle. This is the third cartoon with Marc Anthony and Pussyfoot (Feed the Kitty (1952) and Kiss Me Cat (1953) being the previous shorts).


The cartoon opens with adorable Pussyfoot making herself a cozy little bed on a pillow, when her nap is quickly interrupted by a swift kick from Claude's foot. Marc Anthony jumps in the scene and attacks Claude, to protect Pussyfoot, then makes him return the kitten to his bed. After this, the conniving Claude convinces the animals' stodgy master named Filbert that Marc Anthony is trying to eat Pussyfoot, eventually leading to the dog being tossed outside. As Claude enjoys his new dog-free life, while harassing Pussyfoot, Marc Anthony makes various attempts to harass Claude from outside the house. After several successful attempts to beat up Claude, he eventually forces the cat to surrender and sign a confession admitting to his crimes, and in the end, it is Claude who is tossed outside the house.


  • This cartoon is one of the rare instances where Robert C. Bruce voices an onscreen character as opposed to narrating as usual, in this case he voices Filbert, the owner of Marc Anthony, Pussyfoot and Claude Cat.
  • Claude Cat will antagonize both Marc Anthony and Pussyfoot one more time in Cat Feud.
  • This is the last cartoon where we see Claude with his classic yellow fur and design. In his final two cartoons (No Barking and Cat Feud), Claude is redesigned as a mixed-breed cat with orange fur.
  • This is the last cartoon where Claude speaks. Claude is silent for most of this cartoon, save for one line at the end of the cartoon "Just one of those days, I guess".
  • This cartoon is loosely remade as the Tom and Jerry cartoon The Unshrinkable Jerry Mouse in 1964.
