Ralph's Back!

*** This review may contain spoilers ***


Ralph the Mouse and his dozens of mice cousins are watching an animated superhero mouse on the television just as a family checks into the hotel. They're the Jerrniga family: Mom, Dad and Garfield. Garfield was reluctantly going to attend Happy Acres Camp. Matt shows the family to their room just as Ralph spots his cousins playing with his motorcycle. Ralph told them they were forbidden to use it, but his nasty Uncle Lester ordered him to share it. So he did. But when one of his cousins get's hurt, Uncle Lester forbids Ralph to ever ride the motorcycle again. That did it, Ralph decided to run away.

Ralph hit the open road on his motorcycle, looking for adventure. He didn't get too far, for he wiped out when a camper nearly ran over him. When he came too, he was nearly breakfast for a cat, Catso, and his son Morton. Just as Ralph was thrown into the air and was about to land in Catso's mouth, he was caught in Garfield Jerrniga's butterfly net. He and the other campers took Ralph to the craft shop and put him in a cage, where he met Chum, a golden hamster. Later on, a girl camper, Karen, got poison oak so she went to the nurse's station, leaving her cartoon mouse watch on the table. That night, Morton came in and took the watch, thinking it was a real mouse.

Garfield and Ralph soon get to know each other and Garfield watches him on his motorcycle; Garfield was blamed for stealing Karen's watch when they found it missing. Garfield just couldn't take camp anymore and wanted to leave, but Ralph volunteered to get to the bottom of this, so he outwits Catso and Morton, takes back the watch and hides it in the girl's cabin so Garfield's name was cleared. Before long, the summer was coming to an end and it was time for everyone to go. Ralph decided to go home to the Mountain View Inn, so he rode with Garfield and his parents, because he didn't want to risk it on the road alone, what with those big monster trucks out there!

Though not as good as it's predecessor, it's still a nice short movie. Ray Walston returns as Matt and Billy Barty is back as Uncle Lester. There was a third outing in the series, I think, called Ralph S. Mouse. I know there was a book, but I'm not positive about a movie. But anyway, if you liked the first one, check out Runaway Ralph!
