"Cute? He's delicious!"
27 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The stork gets drunk and mistakenly delivers a baby to Sylvester the cat and his wife, who was just nagging Sylvester about wanting to have kids. But the baby turns out to be a mouse! Right away, Sylvester wants to eat it but, once it calls him Daddy, he has a change of heart. The same can't be said for all the other neighborhood cats, who try their best to get at the baby mouse. Sylvester finds himself in the odd position of protecting a mouse against his fellow felines.

The baby mouse is absolutely adorable. The wife, whose name I do not recall (if she was ever even given one), was a funny character brought to life by the very underrated Bea Benaderet. The other voices, including Sylvester, are handled by the immortal Mel Blanc. Nothing else needs to be said about the quality of the voicework once you know he's involved. The music is energetic and fun. The animation is bright and colorful. A very funny short with some heart and good gags throughout. The ways the cats try to get into the house are hilarious. Loved the ending, too.
