Storyline

Ambrose the kitten renames himself Butch and runs away from home with plans to become a robber. His first intended victim, though, is a real robber: Dirty Bill, a dog. Dirty Bill asks Ambrose/Butch if he's pulled off any big jobs, and he tells of the stagecoach robbery we saw him enacting with dolls and toys at the beginning of the movie, without, of course, mentioning that it was all playacting. Bill asks him about the loot, and Butch brings out a bag of cookies. Bill won't accept that answer, and comes after Ambrose, scaring him right into the bath he earlier avoided.

early Disney
26 June 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Disney presents a Silly Symphonies cartoon in Technicolor. Ambrose the kitten plays with toys acting as a bandit called Butch. His mother calls him but hardened criminals don't take baths. He runs away and encounters real criminal bulldog Dirty Bill. Ambrose gets pulled into a world of crime or does he? I do like the characters and I like the premise but I'm not sure about the clarity of the execution. All of it boils down to noticing the cookies spilling out on the ground in a tiny section of the frame. This is an early Disney product. These characters were probably popular at the time but they are not the long-running icons of the company.
