Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

 Now old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own:

He had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave his home.

A special plan, with deception as the key --

One little cat — how hard could it be? (How hard could it be...?)

"The Cat Came Back" is a hilarious 1988 Animated Short set to the tune of the 1893 comic song, illustrating the eponymous trope taken Serial Escalation. The short, directed by Cordell Barker for Richard Condie and the National Film Board of Canada, features the hapless "Old Mr. Johnson" and his escalating fruitless attempts to relieve himself of the unwanted companionship of the eponymous yellow cat.

This cartoon was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short, as well as winning over a dozen other awards, and comes in at number 32 on the list of The 50 Greatest Cartoons (the latest one on the list, and one of the few from later than the 1950s).

Not to be confused with The Cat Returns.

Watch it here, and and you'll keep coming back...
