Storyline

J.T. Gimlet's department store is closed, and the mice are going on a tour, led by the same W.C. Fields mouse as in Little Blabbermouse (1940). First, the shoe department, where we see mules, both red and green, who pop out of the box and bray at us. Next, the artworks: Whistler's Mother proves to be a good whistler herself; The Thinker is puzzling over his tax return; a painting that starts with two Indians becomes The Last of the Mohicans. In housewares, an automatic ashtray deals with a cigar (prompting a string of babble from Blabbermouse). An automated poker table plays the whole game, complete with the requisite ace-up-the-sleeve. And finally, the gift-wrap department, which includes one robot to measure out ribbon and another to wrap packages. This prompts another string of babble from Blabbermouse, which gets *him* wrapped up (and, when that's not enough, slapped with a "Do Not Open Until Xmas" sticker on his mouth).

Another great musical-type cartoon
22 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

No complaints here, but, this is just about the same cartoon as the slightly earlier, "Little Blabbermouse": a W.C.Fields-type character is giving a tour of a general store, after store hours, to a group of sightseers. The tour 'bus', actually one of those wire framed baskets, contains a tiny little mouse, wearing a gigantic bow tie. The little guy never stops asking questions, never! This all to the irritation of ol' W.C. There are many entertaining bits of the sightseeing car passing, for example, a box of rubber bands, and having said bands pop out playing a jazz-tinged tune...after all, they are a rubber BAND! It's an excellent cartoon, they both are! Cool music and great action.
