The Cat's Tale is a 1941 Merrie Melodies short, directed by Friz Freleng.


A frustrated mouse gets tired of being chased, so he confronts the cowardly cat and orders him to stop. He convinces the cat to tell dog Spike to quit chasing him as well. Mayhem ensues when understandings can't be reached. The cat goes to visit the dog to tell him that all the chasing should stop, but ends up dumping the dog's bowl on his head. The dog chases the cat, who starts chasing the mouse again.


  • This cartoon has a special ending cue, unlike other Merrie Melodies cartoon shorts of the period. This special ending cue is however obliterated in the Turner dubbed version since the dubbed version replaces the original ending cue with the 1941-1955 Merrie Melodies ending music cue.
