Ralph and Morton's final outing
20 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this, the third and final cartoon featuring Ralph and Morton, the two mice have had a night out and are worried that they will be in trouble with their wives as they stayed out three hours later than they promised. On the walk home Morton torments a cat that follows them home and enters the building ahead of them. As they sneak in through their mouse hole they find that they have walked right into the cat... lighting a match soon gets them out though! The cat then goes into their home and when the mice enter and are attacked they assume it is actually their irate wives attacking them! They decide to spend the night in the park while their wives calm down... meanwhile the wives return home worried that their husbands will be annoyed that they stayed out late!

It is a pity that there were only three shorts featuring Ralph and Morton as they are very funny even for people who have never seen 'The Honeymooners'; the show being parodied. While this isn't the best of the three it still has plenty of laughs; I particularly liked it when Morton lassoed the cat's tail and tried to pull it through a letter box and the final twist when the wives return home late. It is of interest that we get to see Morton's wife Trixie as up until now I'd assumed he was meant to be single. If you enjoyed the previous two cartoons featuring these characters you are sure to like this one and if you haven't seen them yet it doesn't matter as they can be watched in any order.
