Storyline

Before they can invade the house, mice Hubie and Bertie must first deal with "Champion Mouser" Claude Cat (making his first appearance in a Warner Bros. cartoon). They decide to drive the high-strung feline insane by, among other things, nailing the furniture and rugs to the ceiling while Claude's asleep. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Sadistic, But Ingenious
1 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Looking for a new home, Hubie and Bertie spot a beautiful place and look in the window and see a bunch of awards and trophies for "Best Mouser of 1948.." Beneath the pile of trophies lies "Claude The Cat." How to get rid of this cat so "we" can safely enjoy this beautiful new house is the plan now for these two sadistic mice.

The sadistic but admittedly funny and ingenious plans these mice up with a definitely fun to watch. They make the poor cat a nervous wreck in no time. I felt sorry for the poor pussy. (By the way, where were the owners of the house during all this chaos?)

I agree with the other reviewers here: this is easily the best Bert & Hubie cartoon I have seen. This is original, good material and part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Two.
