Storyline

Porky hosts a radio program, where animals tell their stories. The guest star is Kansas City Kitty, the best mouser in the country. She tells the story of her life, including her marriage to Tom Collins, the birth of Little Patrick (not necessarily in that order), and the turning point of her life. The mice have plotted out a major operation like gangsters. They sneak out and kidnap Patrick and hold him hostage. The mice soon have the run of the place, raiding the fridge, and generally harassing Kitty, who is distraught. But Patrick escapes, and Kitty gets her revenge. For her story, Porky gives her a present: a wimpy little mouse that scares her. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Irish cat dukes it out with gangster mice on Porky Pig's radio show
25 July 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of Bob Clampett's last works before he started making his cartoons really wacky (see "Eatin' on the Cuff" and "Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid"), "We, the Animals - Squeak!" sure came out of left field. But this is also one where I notice that they gave Porky Pig a more interesting role than most of those that the stuttering swine had had during his first few years. Here he hosts a radio show and one of his guests is Irish cat Kansas City Kitty, who tells her life story. Specifically, the time that a group of gangster mice kidnapped her son. These rodents are some real thugs...but there's more in the works than meets the eye.

So while this may not have had the lasting cultural impact that Clampett's later cartoons "A Corny Concerto" and "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery" had, I still consider it worth seeing. If nothing else, it offers some neat entertainment. Like I said, better than most of Porky's cartoons during his first few years.
