A mangy cat on the verge of starvation finds a tiny canary and a bottle of 'Jumbo-Gro' fertilizer, which gives him an idea that leads to giant cats, dogs, mice and canaries chasing each other round Lilliputian towns and cities...

In a not-so complicated story, Tex Avery takes another shot at the cat-and-mouse formula, this time using a lion in lieu of a domesticated cat.
A mouse tells the story about a lion, who confirms his title as "king of the jungle" by scarring away various animals with a series of ear-shattering roars. However, he gets a taste of his own medicine when he gets scarred by a mouse. The lion later has trouble eluding the mouse when he's continuously harassed by him.
Seeing the mouse stalking a lion will make a few root for the lion, but most will get a kick out of the sadistic humor. The mouse is incredibly cool and confident, putting the lion thru a series of wild takes each time he sees him. The mouse himself is even asking the burning question by the end: "How could anybody be afraid of a mouse?"
This is one of the best and funniest Tex Avery cartoons ever made. So much stuff in only 8 minutes will make one laugh until it hurts!
