Sittin' On A Backyard Fence (1933)

Sittin' on a Backyard Fence is a 1933 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Earl Duvall.


It's the middle of the night, and everyone's asleep except for the house cat (a girl) and alley cats (boys) on the fence competing for her attentions. A bull and three cows from ad posters on the fence sing "Sittin' On A Backyard Fence" and a cat band, using junk instruments play. Two boy cats, one drunk on catnip, fight each other over the girl, and get chased and knocked out by a dog. The girl cat leaves with another male cat, followed by kittens that are obviously theirs. The two fighting cats then shake hands before fainting.
