At the home of Viennese composer Johann Strauss, lived Johann Mouse. Whenever the composer played his waltzes, the mouse would dance to the music, unable to control himself. One day, when Strauss was away, the housecat played his master's music. This forced the mouse to dance, providing the cat with a chance to pounce on him. When word got out about a piano-playing cat and a dancing mouse, they were commanded to perform for the emperor. Written by

Jerry the mouse, here known as Johann Mouse lives in the house of Viennese composer Johann Strauss. Every time Johann plays his music, the mouse can't help but waltz to the tune. So when the master is away the cat learns to play music. But the servants hear Tom playing and soon enough Tom and the mouse are playing for the Emporer. This short won an Oscar for best cartoon short subject in 1953 and it's easy to see why, because while it's not hilarious, it is amusing, charming, and will bring a smile to your face. This amusing animated short can be found on disc 2 of Warner Brother's 2-DVD Spotlight Collection set.
