Storyline

A starving cat wandering in the wilderness sees a sign that says, "Ma's Place/Home Cooking/3 Miles." The cat speeds into town, without noticing the sign that says, "Ghost Town / Population 100 Ghosts." One of these ghosts is a mouse eager to get revenge on cats for having tormented him in life. The dopey cat makes for a perfect scapegoat, and the ghost mouse immediately sets out to harass the hungry kitty. Written by J. Spurlin

Atmospheric and beautifully done
7 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For a cartoon this is wonderfully creepy. The animation is done with real precision and care, I do agree with the other reviewer that this is better seen in black and white, it would be much more atmospheric especially with the shadows. The story is good, the music is brilliant yet again and the gags are solid. I also agree it deserves much more attention, this is an example of a cartoon I would see willingly again for a number of reasons. It is atmospheric. It is fun. It is well animated. And the score as I've said is brilliant.

I definitely recommend the Haunted Mouse. It is really something. 10/10 Bethany Cox
