What could be better than a twin bill that starts with an adorable kitten making biscuits on a grunting pug? Especially when it’s followed by what must surely be its animated inspiration, “Feed the Kitty,” from Looney Tunes genius Chuck Jones.

In our second feature, gruff bulldog Marc Anthony unexpectedly falls in love with a little kitten. But he’s afraid his bitchy mom won’t let him keep it!
Floridly expressive character eyes were a Chuck Jones trademark, and nowhere are they more in evidence than in “Feed the Kitty.”
