Storyline

Meadows the butler, fed up with the family cat's practical jokes, walks off the job, leaving the formerly-pampered feline alone and totally helpless, unaware even of what a mouse looks like. Thus, he's terrified when the cheese-hunting mice Hubie and Bertie show up, making their first appearance in a Warner Bros. cartoon. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Good idea with no substance
30 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A pampered cat is left in the care of the butler by his wealthy owner. After a few final humiliations by the cat, the butler quits and leaves the cat by himself. Unable to feed himself the cat looks up a book which tells him cats eat mice. He isn't sure what he is looking for and is unaware when two mice convince him that the local bulldog is a mouse and that he should easily catch and eat it.

The set up to this short is quite interesting and should have led to a better cartoon, but, once the mice point out the dog then the cartoon seems to just die on it's feet. The action is standard and shows no imagination and not a great deal to laugh about. The film has a total lack of substance which, in something 4 minutes long, is a problem.

The cat and dog characters are pretty weak but the mice are wise-asses and pretty amusing. Again it was just a shame that nothing of great value was done with them.
