Why It Rocks

  5. Solid animation as usual.
  6. Wonderful music by Carl Stalling.
  7. Marc Anthony's facial expressions are very well animated, expressive and emotional.
  8. The cartoon turns from gentle to surprisingly dark once Marc Anthony thinks that Pussyfoot is getting turned into a cookie.

Reception

The cartoon was voted #36 in the 50 Greatest Cartoons book.

Trivia

  • The 2001 Disney/Pixar film Monsters, Inc.GMW features a scene that directly references Feed the Kitty. In this scene, Sulley, believing Boo has been crushed in a trash compactor, exhibits the same reactions as Marc Anthony in the cartoon.
  • The South Park episode "Coon vs. Coon and Friends" recreates scenes from Feed the Kitty with Cartman acting as Pussyfoot and Cthulhu as Marc Anthony in his "cute kitten" routine.
  • Chuck Jones intended the scene with Marc Anthony thinking Pussyfoot was being turned into a cookie to be funny, but was surprised at how poignant the scene turned out.
