Great mouse character does it
11 January 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Porky Pig is having major problems with a mouse he just can't get rid of. Porky's early attempts to buy a cat to kill the mouse or to use poison all fail though leading him to desperate measures of building a robotic cat to do the job for him.

Usually the character getting bad things done to them will be the strongest character when it comes to cat and mouse partnerships. However here the strongest character is the mouse and it makes for an interesting change. The slightly different from normal approach and it is funnier for it - in fact the mouse has no one opponent for the first half of the film. The robot didn't totally work for me but it did allow for some good jokes and I was laughing as I watched it.

Porky has a small role but is really a support character; but not to the detriment of the cartoon. The real star here is the mouse and it leads the routines well throughout - whether being cunning, overconfident or cornered by a cat.

Overall this was a slightly different from normal cartoon that seems the emphasis almost totally on the mouse and not any other character. The gags are pretty funny but it is the character and delivery of the mouse that makes it work as well as it does.
