The Cat’s Out Review
The Cat’s Out is a 1931 Disney animated short film from the Silly Symphonies series. It is a solid early entry in the series.
The premise isn’t executed as well as it should have been, but it still provides some great moments. I loved the beginning and especially ending. The highlight was the cat chasing the bird, that was funny. Watching what happens to a cat when it’s outside during night was a lot of fun.
I really liked the animation despite the character design of the cat being as unfortunately unrealistic and unappealing as usual for these early entries. I thought that the sound design wasn’t the greatest as the meows did not sound right. The plot is basic, but mostly well utilized. The only big problem is the second half as it is filled with too many imagination and dancing sequences which were subpar when compared to the first half.
The Cat’s Out has a weaker second half, but the premise is solid and the film is quite amusing and interesting.
