King-Size Canary (1947).

50 Greatest Cartoons of all time #10.

More "new" ideas for catooning. This Tex Avery proposes meta-cartooning, as one of the character, the Mouse, says to the cat that he must not eat him (the mouse), as long as he is going to save him (the cat).

Not only that, at the end of the show (no spoiler here) both cat and mouse would talk directly to the audience.

As many Tex Avery catoons at MGM, silly sureal situations would rule the general scheme. This time is a bottle that almost everybody will drink to turn themselves bigger and bigger.

A cat that couldn't eat, a canary that is the aviarian version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a dog that thinks so much of himself and a Mouse that is smarter than any of them is the cast of this crazy but genial cartoon.

King Size Canary

A mangy cat on the verge of starvation finds a tiny canary and a bottle of 'Jumbo-Gro' fertiliser, which gives him an idea that leads to giant cats, dogs, mice and canaries.
