Works fine as a stand alone story even without knowledge of the source material
3 November 2008 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Robert McKimson's 'The Honey Mousers' is a parody of the television sitcom 'The Honeymooners', the same sitcom that later spawned 'The Flintstones'. Through no fault of anyone involved in the cartoon, 'The Honey Mousers' references always went straight over my head since I'm from the UK. Nevertheless, I always enjoyed this cartoon as a child purely on its own merits. Despite the characters being based on the protagonists of 'The Honeymooners' (and to this day I've never seen an episode), there's sufficient plot for anyone unfamiliar with the source material to still enjoy 'The Honey Mousers'. It moves along quickly and has enough amusing moments to be a decent and enjoyable piece without any knowledge of what it is parodying, unlike McKimson's subsequent Jack Benny parody 'The Mouse That Jack Built'. I'm sure that for people who are familiar with 'The Honeymooners', 'The Honey Mousers' is hysterically funny. As it is I can't comment except to say that it works fine as a stand alone story too.
