An Insult To All Cats & Dogs
25 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was my second look at a "Bertie and Hubie" (two mice) cartoon, featuring Claude the Cat. It was better than the initial appearance of these guys in an animated short (which was awful), but it still was no great shakes.

It had a few quick funny moments, though, but it sure makes the cat and the dog look insanely stupid. Hubie, the braver of the two mice, dresses Claude up to look like a lion, after explaining to the clueless feline that cats and lions are from the same family. The "lion" then goes out to eat a moose (because "moose" is plural for mice, Hubie tells the cat) and the moose, of course, is the dog dressed in antlers. (How the dog allowed a mouse to put that on him without his knowledge is not explained!)

Neither of these poor dumb creatures knows what is going on and that's the humor of the cartoon, which is "fair," at best.
