Storyline

A mouse, imitating W.C. Fields, leads tours of a drugstore for other mice. We see a number of products living up to their names: vanishing cream, reducing pills, sleeping powders, smelling salts, cough medicine. On to the lunch counter: a giant malt (sign). More products: shaving brush, Krazy mineral water, a rubber band (and brushes dancing to it). A musical revue: the clocks all sing "Start the Day Right"; an order pad would "Love to Take Orders From You"; a ballet troupe wants to "Shake Your Powder Puff"; and so on. Greeting cards greet our tourists. The mousetraps are harmless but the cat next to them isn't, and thus ends the tour. An annoying little boy who's been chatting away the whole time finally gets a jar of alum in the face to shut him up. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Goofs

When the basket first goes up, Little Blabbermouse is left behind because he was standing in one of the openings in the bottom of the basket. The tour guide provides him with a small pad he can stand in, yet as the basket rises a second time, the entire bottom of the basket is covered, and remains so for the remainder of the cartoon.

drugstore mouse boy
19 October 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

The first appearance of the over-talkative rodent was Friz Freleng's "Little Blabbermouse", in which a mouse resembling W.C. Fields hosts a tour of a drugstore full of puns. Dangers arrives in the form of a cat. The plot appeared again in "Shop Look and Listen", only that time set in a department store.

These cartoons were always some of the neatest, even if the jokes were pretty hokey. The theme of inanimate objects coming to life of course reached its apex with Bob Clampett's "Book Revue". Still, this one has some neat stuff (like the coins singing "We're in the Money"). Pretty interesting.
