Storyline

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 David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Hmmm...an interesting choice for the Oscar...
2 September 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am a rabid fan of animated shorts and I have long marveled at the choices the Academy made in the 1940s and 50s for the Best Animated Short Oscars. Amazingly enough, not very many were earned by Looney Tunes shorts (though they were clearly the best of the era) and often lesser films were given the award. Oddly, while the films tended to be rather repetitive, Tom and Jerry alone won about as many Oscars as all the Looney Tunes shorts combined. Now I do agree that many of the 1940s Tom and Jerry shorts had great animation, but why so many Oscars? Well, one reason is that their shorts that featured classical music cleaned up--with CAT CONCERTO and JOHANN MOUSE taking the prize. It seems that combining classical music with cartoons was a sure recipe for success in this time period. And, wonderful classics such as OPERATION RABBIT (one of the best Looney Tunes shorts ever) and HASTY HARE (with Marvin the Martian) didn't even get nominated for the 1953 Oscar!

So let's get to JOHANN MOUSE. There are a few things going for it. It is a nice departure from the usual locale and plot of a Tom and Jerry cartoon. It also is rather cute. But on the negative side, this animation is of an inferior quality compared to the product of the 1940s--with far simpler backgrounds and character animation. Also, the story lacks the hard edge that many expect from Tom and Jerry. I'd say that even compared to other Tom and Jerry cartoons, it's not among the better films. Just my two cents worth.
