Director Chuck Jones and his best writer, Michael Maltese, produce a
typically sardonic, funny and undeniably accurate cartoon version of
Aesop's fable of the lion and the mouse, in which the mouse --
definitely a cousin of Hubie from the Hubie and Bertie cartoons -- cons
the rather stupid lion into releasing him from danger several times,
each time, shouting "Sucker!"
On the good side, we also have Jones' insistence on the consistent and
believable psychology of the characters. On the downside, this one has
not aged perfectly. There is a reference to wartime rationing in one of
the gags, but the inventiveness of the variations on a theme will
delight most cartoon fans.
