It doesn't make sense if it was replaced due to time constraints because this cartoon is of average length and even the longer one-reelers usually air as scheduled, like Klondike Casanova and the aforementioned Spinach vs Hamburgers. I already own this cartoon on Blu-ray but I still enjoyed the idea of seeing it air on TV (also it's a better cartoon than Tar with a Star). I wonder if it's a coincidence that this cartoon was removed from the Boomerang app roughly two weeks ago, so it may have been on the brains of the people at Turner.



Was "Tar with a Star" supposed to air the following week or something? Perhaps the shorts switched airdates.

It only popped up anywhere on the schedule a few days prior to yesterday, and this is where they placed it:

Otherwise it most likely would have aired late next month or some point in November, but it looks like they pushed it up suddenly to replace Wigwam Whoopee.

The restored version of Scat Cats aired this morning in its proper CinemaScope ratio.

I've been waiting for them to air this one ever since they aired Give and Tyke, since finding a copy of Scat Cats both restored AND in its proper ratio has not been easy. This was much appreciated.

They aired the old A.A.P. master of Popeye's Premiere for whatever reason.

It's worth mentioning that Tar with a Star is scheduled to air yet again on Saturday, December 4th, proving my theory that it only aired back in September to replace Wigwam Whoopee at the last minute due to content reasons with the latter (which again, makes no sense for a channel like TCM).
