Hipster Cool Cat arrives in his dune buggy at Disco Tech college, where he is a student. Cool Cat decides to be an athlete for the college. To impress some girls, he tries to pole vault. A bee's sting causes him to make an incredible leap over the pole. With every sport that Cool Cat plays, the same bee stings him at an opportune time, resulting in bursts of energy that enable Cool Cat to row fast, leap hurdles, and score football touchdowns. Disco Tech becomes number one in college sports, and the bee is awarded. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

During a football game, Cool Cat was scored a touchdown after running through the stands and in-and-out of the stadium several times. In a real game, this touchdown wouldn't have counted - Cool Cat would have been deemed out-of-bounds during this play. See more »

Bugged by a Bee was one of the funnier of the latter-day Warner Bros. cartoons
10 January 2009 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this latter-day Warner Bros. Looney Tunes cartoon on YouTube as linked from the Misce-Looney-ous blog. It stars a now-forgotten character named Cool Cat who's voiced by Larry Storch, the star of Warner Bros. Television's "F Troop" (whose music scorer is the same here-William Lava). Cool Cat is a college student who wants to outscore the Big Man on Campus in athletics. With the help of a bee that keeps stinging his tail, he...well, watch the short. Directed by Bob McKimson (yes, that's how he's credited here), that bee provides most of the laughs from me in this not-so-limited animation short as there are some movements of Cool Cat that are pretty hilarious if I do say so myself. With this being one of the last of the WB theatrical cartoons in regular production, I'd recommend Bugged by a Bee to any Warner cartoon completist out there...
