Storyline

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

Old & Creaky, But Still Passable
1 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an early (1932) attempt to have a cartoon in which the animated figures react to music. In other words, all their movement, from individual steps to slapstick-type stuff, all coincides with the music. In the '40s several cartoons won awards for this sort of thing, ones that feature Tom and Jerry or Bugs Bunny.

This one wasn't advanced enough to have that cleverness and color that we saw in the next decade, but for a 1932 effort this is passable. Just don't expect to get any laughs out of it. It still has some entertainment value, however, and all these little miniature Mickey Mouse- lookalike mice are "cute."

The "story" is just a bunch of mice enjoying a record, jumping on top of the vinyl disc as it goes around on the record player. Later, some of them play the flute and jump up and down on the drums. The second half offers some humor as one of the little mice falls into a spittoon

I did think Al Jolson imitation near the end was pretty good. Also, instead of "That's all, folks," the ending was "So long, folks!"

I saw this on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Three. It was one of the "From The Vault" features on disc two.
