Quotes

Filligan: Duh... My name is Filligan, and I'm gonna catch an R-A-T, mouse.
Sniffles: How do you do, Mr. Filligan? My name's Sniffles. Why you gonna catch a mouse? Why do cats always try to catch mouses? Mouses don't try to catch a cat, because what would a mouse do with a cat if a mouse could caught a cat? Can you tell a mouse from a cat? Can you? Huh?
Filligan: Duh... You bet I can. You can't fool me because I'm too stupid!

Sniffles the bad-ass
14 August 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Knowing that Sniffles was usually just plain "cute", it's neat to see him have one turn as a sadist. In this case, a tavern's "speshul" is mouse "nuckles", but they ain't got none, and Eddie G. Robincat is getting hungry, see? So, brainless waiter Filligan goes in search of mice and finds Sniffles, who turns out to have a cruel streak. Even I couldn't have predicted what was going to happen! OK, so most people in the 21st century won't have a clue what "Hush My Mouse" spoofs (I sure didn't until I read IMDb's description), and there's no guarantee that people will recognize the Edward G. Robinson reference. But if we just take the cartoon at face value and luxuriate in everything that befalls the two cats running the tavern, it's very easy to enjoy the cartoon. Available on YouTube.

I suspect that had they waited five to ten years to make "Hush My Mouse", they would have portrayed Sylvester going after Speedy or Claude going after Hubie and Bertie. You can probably guess what would have happened.
