Hiss and Make Up

Hiss and Make Up is a 1943 Merrie Melodies short.

Title

The title is a pun on "kiss and make up."

Plot

An old woman has a cat, a dog, and a canary. The cat and dog fight even worse than normally. Fed up, she tells them both off, then threatens to throw them both out if there's any more trouble. The two then take turns framing each other and summoning their master: first, the dog unleashes a whole box of mechanical mice, which the cat manages to sit on (they carry him right into the basement); the cat stamps dirty dog footprints all over the room, but because the dog plays air raid warden ("put out that light!"), their owner doesn't see them. The dog glues canary feathers to the cat, but the canary pops out of hiding; the cat uses shaving cream to make the dog look rabid. Finally, the canary, fed up, frames both of them; they attack its cage, just as their owner arrives, and both are thrown out but, as it turns out, the smiling cat has taken the bird with him.

Trivia

  • Some of the cartoon's concept would be reworked as the Bugs Bunny cartoon Hare Force, where like this cartoon Granny warns her constantly feuding pets that she would throw them out into the snow if she hears any more noise (although the plot of Hare Force appears to be much closer to a prototype of Kit For Cat). Also, Granny would reappear in Hare Force withe the same character design as in this cartoon (although still voiced by Bea Benaderet, but having a less high-pitched voice).
  • Interestingly, the canary is the only one of the three pets in this cartoon who doesn't have a name.
