Okay, this 1939 comic from Cuban Communist newspaper Noticias de Hoy isn't exactly a video. But it does show that the appeal of the cat-in-box genre is longstanding. Wonder if Noticias ever had any comics about adorable drugged-out children or leaving pop stars alone.

I am pretty sure I had a family member who was Editor in Chief of this newspaper. Will ask my father when I get off work this evening.
If my memory serves me correctly, then this definitely explains a lot.
