The Cat Came Back - Cordell Barker

Today's animation is an oldie but a goody. "The Cat Came Back" is an animation by Cordell Barker from 1988. Based on an old folk song by Harry S. Miller (originally titled "The Cat Came Back: A Comic Negro Absurdity"), the Barker's version leaves out most of the lyrics, using the animation to tell the story.

I remember this cartoon from my childhood - although I'm not sure where I saw it. Maybe Sesame Street? Anyway. Let me know if this brings back memories for any of you. Enjoy!
