The cat's asleep, so the mice are on the loose, for a while at least, in the pantry. When he wakes up, they pile the food on him and get him thrown out, and then they *really* have the run of the house.

Storyline

"When the cat's away, the mice will play." The cat is taking a nap, so the mice invade the pantry and start having the time of their lives. The cat soon wakes up, however, and the mice must act quickly to keep from being eaten. Will they just run and hide, or will they stand up for themselves?

"Have a heart. I was only foolin'."

Fun Tex Avery short about some evil mice that steal a bunch of food and let a cat take the blame, resulting in his mean old owner tossing him out in the snow. Soon the mice have taken over the old man's home and he's begging the cat to help. The title is taken from a song of the same name that was popular in the 1920s. The mice sing it after they've gotten the cat thrown out. This is an enjoyable little cartoon. Not on par with Avery's best work but still it's fun. The animation is great. I love the colors and everything is well-drawn. The music is lively and the aforementioned song is catchy. Love all the little bits with the mice pigging out and giving the old man the business.
