This is followed by a two-page episode as Foghorn Leghorn attempts to keep Daffy Duck from jinxing the performance of “The Scottish Play.” Imagine – Foghorn trying to keep someone else quiet. Not an entirely convincing effort on the part of Looney Tunes’ biggest loudmouth.
Finally, we are presented with Shaolin Puddy Tat, as a sensei seeks to inspire his student with the wiley ways of the cat. However, like Foghorn before him, Sylvester is not the best example which to follow. It was a little strange to see humans portrayed opposite Looney Tune characters. Usually, for Elmer Fudd or Yosemite Sam, they have a certain style, but the two humans here seem worefully out of place in the story; it read like a crossover between the Loonies and Hanna-Barbera.
Sylvester returns in a brief follow-up, as he disguises himself as a feline falcon, only to find himself a woefully endangered species. This time, the humans resemble Simpsons-style animation, which is an even less palatable mixture.
For long-time fans of Looney Tunes, this particular issue is fairly weak. Oh, well, you can’t win them all.
