User Reviews

 
While I like this cartoon, it should be titled The Unbearable Sniffles!

Let me say at the outset that I usually LIKE Sniffles and that some Sniffles shorts are favorites of mine. Most of the time, I think he's funny. Not here, though, because here he's like fingernails on a chalkboard and distracts the viewer from an otherwise delightful cartoon. In this one, I devoutly wish a cat would appear with the idea that he and Sniffles do lunch, with Sniffles as the main course. Splendid cartoon with an oversized helping of gabby mouse. Worth watching unless you dislike Sniffles. Recommended with the above reservations in mind.
