Freudy Cat is a 1964 Looney Tunes cartoon. In this short, Sylvester and Sylvester Jr. visits a psychiatrist when Sylvester loses his sanity over his thoughts of Hippety Hopper. It is often considered to be the worst pairing of Sylvester, Sylvester Jr., and Hippety Hopper in the classic era of Looney Tunes.

Why It's Freudy

  1. Much like "Devil's Feud Cake", it is a pointless clip show short due to reusing footage from "Who's Kitten Who?", "Cats A-weigh!", and "The Slap-Hoppy Mouse".
  2. Notable lack of new animation outside of the reused footage. The new animation is also poorly drawn and animated.
  3. It completely rehashes the 1959 Sylvester/Tweety cartoon "Tweet Dreams", which, while also not being a good clip show short by itself as well, was much better executed than this short, "Devil's Feud Cake" and especially "Mucho Locos".
    • The short even goes as far as to recycle the ending from "Tweet Dreams", where the psychiatrist also goes insane as well and hops out like Hippety Hopper, with Sylvester and Sylvester Jr. following.
  4. Horrendous music, even when using Carl Stalling's stock music from the original shorts. The music attempts to jumble up Carl Stalling's music with new and stock music from William Lava and Philip Green, resulting in a mess of a schizophrenic soundtrack, intentional or not. While this schizophrenic soundtrack was fixed on HBO Max's streaming service, this isn't much to say, as the soundtrack still sounds horrifically atonal.
  5. Limited sound effects compared to the other shorts in the classic era.
  6. This short ended Sylvester Jr. and Hippety Hopper's careers in the Golden Age on a sour note.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Amazing voice acting by Mel Blanc as usual.
  2. The characters are still enjoyable and entertaining to watch.
  3. As mentioned above, the soundtrack was fixed on the HBO Max streaming service, and sounds slightly better. Carl Stalling's stock musical score is the only good part of the soundtrack.
