"Catching mice is pretty strenuous work and I'm not as young as I used to be."
16 November 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Fun Sylvester short directed by Robert McKimson. This one has Sylvester getting a job as a mouse catcher aboard a ship. His son Junior comes along to help out (and winds up doing most of the work). The two eventually meet baby kangaroo Hippety Hopper and, as always, mistake him for a large mouse. The animation is very nice with well-drawn characters and backgrounds. Lively music from Carl Stalling. Great voice work from the incomparable Mel Blanc. It's a funny short with many good gags and lines. They may seem a little familiar if you've seen many other shorts with Sylvester and Hippety, but I think they still work. I'm a huge fan of Sylvester, Jr. so any cartoon with him in it is entertaining to me.
