They sentenced me to death because I wouldn't eat a mouse...
24 August 2003 | by (Panama) – See all my reviews

"I've got you and you've got me and that's between the two of us..."

I saw this version of the Puss in Boots tale some 20 years ago. Still can't get the damn song out of my head!

For some reason I still find this version the best of them all. Beats the hell out of anything I can imagine The House the Mouse Built doing...

Anybody have a DVD copy for region 4 available??
