showcase: the Cat Came Back, by Cordell Barker

What may be the most well-known piece of animation from the NFB, Cordell Barker’s the Cat Came Back is another classic piece of NFB animation that they have made available via their online archive.  Back when this film was produced, the NFB made a deal to have it screened before every showing of A Fish Called Wanda, which was a huge hit.  Opportune placement.
