Storyline

When boorish bumpkin Abner Countrymouse visits his flash cousin Morty Citymouse the ruffian is immediately impressed by the opulent spread of food on a grand feast table, but ignorantly digs into mustard and drowns the blazing thirst in champagne. Alas the symptoms of his drunkenness extend beyond hiccups to flippant arrogance, even kicking the cat, which starts him onto a roller-coaster of urban dangers... Written by KGF Vissers

In this Silly Symphony, a mouse from the country visits his cousin in the city. Most of the short is the two mice exploring the dinner table. The animation is fine, where this short suffers is in a lack of humor. Perhaps I've just seen this "dinner table adventure" in one too many Tom and Jerry shorts. Even though this came first, I just didn't find it that enjoyable.
