Complete credited cast:
Elmo the Mouse / Herman / Blackie (voice)


In this cartoon love triangle, a mouse named Daisy Lou has two suitors. One, Elmo, is a modest, scrawny, country mouse with yokel speech and mannerisms, while the other, Blackie, is a smug, suave, muscular sophisticate. When Blackie appears to have won Daisy Lou's affections with a mink stole, Elmo promises to obtain an ermine coat for her. He returns with a fur coat, which he presents to a grateful and adoring Daisy Lou. The fur is from a cat named Herman, whom Elmo thought was ermine and led on a chase around a table, which knocked Herman unconscious so that Elmo could remove a coat-shaped patch of fur.

I got ideas
20 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of Arthur Davis's few cartoons as a director (Warner Bros. couldn't afford to keep four animation units opened, so they closed his) features a yokel mouse going to see his sweetheart, only to find her with a suaver mouse. The suaver mouse seems to be prepared for anything. But what about ermine? Obviously the male-female relationships are a little dated, but I think that if a cartoon makes you laugh, then it's a good one. As it was, "A Hick a Slick and a Chick" appeared in Cheech and Chong's "Up in Smoke". Interesting how these things turn out.

Anyway, worth seeing, if only once. Just don't get any ideas.
