Comments

From Thad Komorowski : I always had some sort of fascination with Figaro, he seemed to be Disney's only 'nice' cat. I love Figaro's reactions of realizing he looks like a sissy, and the ending is cute too.
From Baruch Weiss : In this short Minnie gives Figaro a bath (cats usually give themselves a bath so what was the point?) and then dresses him up in a bow. He then goes outside and gets made fun of by a group of alley cats. This cartoon was ok, but I'm not going to call it one of my favorites. In fact, any kid who's been bullied in school or at home can really relate to this short!
From Dino Cencia : My favorite part was the ending Minnie saw Figaro and she picked him up and said: "Figaro, where on earth have you been? You're all dirty." And then Figaro imagined himself as a skunk. Then last Minnie said: "Now you've got to have another bath." Minnie Mouse is awesome and sweet in this short. This short was really good and I enjoyed it. I give it a 600.
