"There's no mouse too big for a pussycat!"
30 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A fun short directed by Robert McKimson and starring Sylvester and Hippety Hopper. Hippety receives above-the-title billing here. The plot has Sylvester, Jr. trying to use a pipe to lure mice a la the Pied Piper and instead attracting kangaroo Hippety Hopper, who's once again escaped from the zoo. Sylvester, believing Hippety to be a large mouse, does his best to catch him. Great voice work from Mel Blanc. He was never better, in my opinion, than when doing the exchanges between Sylvester and son. Lively, jaunty music. The animation is very nice, if a little sketchy. The colors are bright and vivid. It's a simple but fun short with lots of laughs and cute, likable characters. Hippety and Junior aren't everybody's cup of tea but they always make me smile.
