Storyline

Mr. and Mrs. Jones hear a piano being played in their living room. They automatically assume it is their cat who is making the music, when in fact, the talented one is a mouse whom the cat has forced into being his stooge to make him famous. The cat is showered with media attention and set to play at Carnegie Hall, where he hopes nobody will notice that he is pantomiming the movements with the keys while the mouse is playing his miniature piano inside the full-scale model.

Nothing special, but cute nonetheless
18 December 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon isn't particularly special or terribly novel (various aspects of it and its general theme have been explored before and since-often to better effect), but it is a cute cartoon. The music throughout, but especially at the end, is particularly enjoyable. Worth seeing, even if its been done better.
