Claude Cat

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 5, 2004

    A minor character of Chuck Jones. Claude, who is cream-colored with a shock of red hair, is confronted by either wise-guy mice Hubie and Bertie, or by Frisky Puppy, an eager little dog whose wild barks send Claude flying.

    An especially good sight gag used by Jones, animated by Harris (see below), comes after Claude has been chased up to the ceiling: Claude lets go, falls upside-down, turning right-side up about an inch above the floor.
