Storyline

A mouse, sleeping in the Zowie Cafe, has his sleep disturbed by the jukebox. He crawls into the machine, but the mechanism flings him out the coin return. The mouse lands in a glass of Zowie beverage, which he happily drinks. Bottles tip over, releasing the spirits (both alcoholic and ghostly) within. The ghosts form a band, at first just playing rhythm (with peanuts as maracas). Turtles in the cafe's fountain start dancing. A lobster on a plate does a 'Carmen Miranda' impression. The figures on a lamp dance around the shade. A cactus dances with the mouse. The mouse hits the floor, knocking several mouse ghosts loose; they form a conga line, leading to the mouse's bed, where he falls back to sleep. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Cute, well animated cartoon.
7 October 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is a very cute (almost too cute in spots), very well animated cartoon. Given its title, an excellent use of music is to be expected and that's precisely what you have-the animation and score going hand in glove smoothly, like a single unit, a strength of the Lantz studio in particular, although they were hardly alone. All of the major studios did the same, but Lantz and Warner Brothers were probably the best at matching music and animation rhythms. Well worth watching. Recommended.
