Halloween Countdown: Switchin’ Kitten

I think the fact that this vintage Tom and Jerry short takes place in an archetypal creepy castle on a stormy night, and features a Dr. Frankenstein-esque mad scientist (who incidentally appears to be on both helium and speed) qualifies it as prime Halloween season viewing.


I love a good collection of outlandish lab equipment, and boy does this castle deliver in that department.


Also of note, a brief scene involving a large tome entitled LOVABLE CATS (which is, unfortunately, not in print).

What was your favorite old Halloween cartoon?

    When I was little I always like Disney’s Lonesome Ghosts and Trick or Treat for Halloween with Donald, Huey, dewy, and Louis 🙂

      Disney’s Halloween Treat had clips of all these and it was my favorite as a kid. Just watched it last year and still loved all of it.

      Oh my gosh, Phairhead…that creepy 100 year old man in the end! I LOVE that Garfield special. Must watch again this year.
