Claws in the Lease

"Claws in the Lease" is a 1963 Warner Bros. Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Robert McKimson. The short was released on November 9, 1963, and stars Sylvester and Sylvester Jr.


Sylvester lives with his son in a city dump. Sylvester Jr. then decides to find a home for themselves. He finds one (and notifies his dad in a hurry, making Sylvester think the fish cannery reopened), but the lady who lives there only wants to adopt Sylvester Jr. and separates him from his father. When the lady puts milk in a bowl for Sylvester Jr., Sylvester starts drinking it but gets bopped on the head with a broom by the lady, who then takes Junior inside. Then Sylvester gets angry and starts knocking on the door and screaming: "Alright, you catnapper, come back with my son! Come on now, open up", but the lady hits him with the broom again, telling him to stay out.
