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).

Those mice will drive you insane... with laughter!
26 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

One of the funniest films ever. The animation of Claude Cat's reaction after he wakes up to find himself on the "ceiling" is the type of artistry that makes you blow milk or various other liquids out your nose. One of Chuck Jones best! **** out of ****
