The Cat That Hated People

Image for The Cat That Hated People

Dir. Tex Avery

US 1948 | Colour | 7 mins | Animation | Hollywood Classics

A cat finds his nerves so frazzled by the behaviour of people that he decides to take a rocket to the moon. What he meets on the moon (a walking nappy, pins, talc, a pair of lips, a dog collar…) outdoes, and pre-dates, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and provides an extremely humorous counterpoint to the then-fashionable surrealist movement.

Available on: 35mm
