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>

So his name is Claude...
20 August 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I never even knew that the cat in "Mouse Wreckers" was named Claude until I read about it on this site. But either way, Claude really suffers here, as New York-accented mice Hubie and Bertie pull a series of tricks to scare him out of the house. Probably the coolest gags are the stunt with the rope, and then the whole end sequence.

Still, I can't help but wonder why it is that cats always have to bear the brunt of abuse at the hands of cartoon characters. It seems like there should have been some cartoon in which a cat makes mincemeat of a dog or something. But still, this is a great one.

Claude really could have used some pineapple upside down cake at the end!
