The cute mouse cartoon as done by Tex Avery
7 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery did a triptych of "cute little mouse" cartoons, but not to worry, gang, they have the Avery backspin, particularly this one. The three, Ain't We Got Fun, A Sunbonnet Blue and this one, were all quite recognizable as Avery shorts and the end gag on this one is prototypical Avery. This one has a fair amount of singing and is more cutesy than usual, but is definitely an Avery short, without a doubt! Well worth looking for. Recommended.
