Don't let the title card fool you — the canary does not actually look like this in the cartoon itself.
A landmark Tex Avery
cartoon made during his MGM tenure during The Golden Age of Animation
, voted no. 10 on The 50 Greatest Cartoons
list. This oneshot short is centered around a hungry cat who, in an attempt to get more meat out of a pea size canary snack ("Well... I'm sick."), pours a bottle of Jumbo Gro Plant Growth formula on him-only to make him grow to gargantuan proportions. The tables keep turning and turning as one of the other keeps drinking more of the formula as their battle continues. Obviously, Hilarity Ensues
The plot was recycled for the Sylvester the Cat and Tweety Bird
short Hyde and Go Tweet
in which Tweety Bird accidentally drank Dr. Jekyll's formula
, much to Sylvester's confusion.
