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>

wonderful cruel fun!
14 June 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the all-time best Warner Brothers cartoons--even better than the best of Bugs or Daffy! It's THAT good! Hubie and Bertie the mice are looking for a nice place to live. They come upon a wonderful house they would love to live in, but there's a serious problem--the house ALSO has a cat. So, the incredibly cruel mice decide to drive the cat crazy so he will leave and they can have the house to themselves.

What results are some of the funniest evil tricks in cartoon history! At one point they put ear phones on the cat and then proceed to nail everything on the floor to the ceiling and vice-versa! The cat then awakens and tries, unsuccessfully, to walk on what he thinks is the floor! They also tie a rope to the cat's tail and run it all over the house--after which, they drop the weighted end down the chimney and watch the cat being drug all through the house! This cartoon has it all--great animation, great writing, great characters and a bit of an evil streak that makes you laugh out loud. While not quite as good, I also strongly recommend you see Cheese Chasers--with the same cast and high level of fun.
