Cutesy and dull
15 November 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A mouse arrives at a chemist's shop with a head cold looking for a remedy. He takes some medicine that burns him and drinks some whiskey to help stop the burning sensation but it only succeeds in making him very drunk. While drunk he befriends an electric razor and bumps into the store cat.

Starting with a cute animation that makes it look more like those worthless cartoons that get shown at Christmas time, I was immediately put on the defensive. Usually I like the cartoons that have a sharp, imaginative wit about them and I assumed this wouldn't have that. Sadly I was bang on the money with this one as it turns out to be as lame and unimaginative as the animation style suggested it would be.

The comedy was a little bit amusing at times but it never really did anything worth while – the plot itself doesn't really make use of the cat and spends more time with a humming friendly razor (to no good effect). I didn't laugh once and didn't find any of it even halfway amusing. A big reason for this is the lack of characters. The little mouse is just a little ball of fluff and the electric razor is just weird and not really given anything to do of any merit. The cat is a waste of space who is easily gotten rid of in a gag that is seen coming from miles away.

Overall this is an unfunny little cartoon that lacks wit or imagination. You would do well to avoid this cartoon and look for some of the much better WB shorts that are out there.
