One of the first appearances of the little mouse, called Nibbles here, 15 May 2001

This cartoon, an Oscar winner (with good reason, as it's marvelous) features one of the early appearances of the little mouse named Nibbles primarily (although sometimes called Tuffy), he is rather cute and endearing. But I'd hate to pay his grocery bills! Nibbles became a very frequent and popular character and this was his second cartoon appearance, after The Milky Waif. Most highly recommended.
