Swallow the Leader (1949)

Now you all know this cartoon, Swallow the Leader is the only one in which we see Supreme Cat on his own (he was previously seen alongside Porky Pig in Paying the Piper). Also released in 1949, of course.

This time, Supreme Cat is after a blue and orange feathered bird.

That's the same cat used in "It's Hummertime", it's followup, "Early To Bet", and in one Foghorn Leghorn film. It was just a generic McKimson cat (like the bulldog who starred with him, and with others), until McKimson focused more on the similar Sylvester in the Hippety/Junior and Speedy series.

You mean a "swallow"... hence, the title. I always thought that high-collar he wore was kind of odd. This is another of those WB cartoons with great narration by (uncredited) Robert C. Bruce. Richard Thomas's backgrounds are really nice, too.
