Late at night, the mice come out and sing and play to the title tune, among others. That is, until the cat arrives, but he's quickly sent packing.

A mouse ventures out of his hole at a quarter after midnight. His tail gets caught in a mousetrap, but he escapes unharmed. It looks as if the coast is clear. He waves forth the other mice. Out they come, young and old, male and female, all ready to play music and have fun. But though the house is safe inside, outside lurks a very hungry cat. He manages to break inside and eat the cuckoo bird out of a clock for an appetizer. For his main course, he wants a mouse. But he'll have to deal with the entire mouse community, and their resourceful use of musical instruments as weapons, before he'll get one. Written by J. Spurlin

It seems like a Mickey ripoff.
22 September 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While the mice in this animated short don't act like Mickey, they sure look like him. Some say that imitation is the sincerest form of me it just seems like a cheap attempt by Looney Tunes to ripoff the Mouse! Like the early Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies animated shorts, this one was supervised by the (uggh) team of Harmon and Ising--whose cutesy style was really big during the 30s and early 40s. While popular at the time, today their cartoons for Merrie Melodies and MGM look, well, pretty dreadful. It isn't that the animation is so bad, but the stories are just so saccharine and lack any of the edge later cartoons would have. Fortunately, for a Harmon/Ising production, this is among the least cutesy of their cartoons. Now this isn't saying it's good, because it really isn't. I only gave this film a 5 because relative to other films of the day, it was pretty average--though significantly less interesting than a real Mickey Mouse cartoon of the day.

The film consists of a raspy cat trying to kill the poor mice and, naturally, the mice prevailing (I bet you didn't see THAT coming, huh?!). In addition, there is some singing at the end because I think Harmon/Ising were contractually obligated to irritate the audiences with these awful songs.

Of interest to film historians (after all, this film was somehow nominated for an Oscar) and masochistic film viewers who like painfully unfunny cartoons.
