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.

"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? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

A bit better than the average Merrie Melody short of the time but it could sure do without the singing.
21 February 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The film begins with a nasty old guy mistreating his poor 'ol cat. When the cat falls asleep, the mice come out and play. When the cat tries to stop them, the owner mistakenly thinks the cat is at fault and tosses it into the snow! Soon, however, the mice REALLY run amok and start singing (NOOOO!!! Not the singing!) and the guy realizes his mistake and invites his expert mouser back--and the film ends on a cute note you'll just have to see for yourself.

In the 1930s, the Looney Tunes folks mostly made cutesy films with lots of singing. It wasn't until the 40s that the cartoons became edgier and funnier---and developed the great characters we know today, such as Bugs Bunny and the Road Runner. Now for a 1930s Merrie Melodies film (the name given to the singing shorts), "Ain't We Got Fun" is better than average. This is because it has a nice sense of humor that helps you forget about the singing portion! But, compared to later cartoons, it comes up a bit short--even if the animation is pretty good.
