From Jerry Edwards : A very thorough description has already been done. I really like this short - a lot of fun weirdness. The scene of the live trees taking turns in throwing the cat into each other's mouths was particularly grotesque.
From Ryan : This is one of my favorite Silly Symphony shorts. I enjoy all the weird scenes such as anthropomorphic trees that appear in the cat's nightmare. This is also the only Silly Symphony that uses its original title when shown on TV.
