Trivia

The mouse that robs the trap Porky sets out quotes Baby Snooks' line, "I'm only three and a half years old". However, as house mice are adults at an age of fifty days and have a lifespan of two to three years, a three and a half year old mouse would be a geriatric case. See more »

Goofs

During the mouse trap scene, when the mouse grabs the cheese, you can see crumbs. However, when the mouse is hit on the head with an olive, the crumbs vanish in a few frames. See more »

"I'll throw 'em out b-b-b-bodily!"
24 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Chuck Jones directed this enjoyable Porky Pig short. I'm not the biggest Porky fan but I do like him when he's in his element as the put-upon protagonist having to deal with one annoyance or another. This time Porky is trying to sleep but some noisy mice are keeping him awake. So he tries a mouse trap but it doesn't work. Then he tries a cat, which works but presents a whole other problem that Porky must deal with. It's a good-looking cartoon with lovely colors and well-drawn animation. The voice work from the incomparable Mel Blanc is as good as you would expect. Carl Stalling's music is very nice as well. The gags are fun and there are some good lines. My favorite part was the bits with the drunk cats. It's not a knee-slapper but it is entertaining.
