Storyline

When the young mouse, Max's family is killed by exterminators, he is forced to move to his Aunt's home under the White House in Washington D.C.. There he finds life more lively than he ever thought possible with his friends, the crusading Berkeley, the roguish Jammit, the frazzled and periodically exploding Muggle the Lab Rat, and Moze, the hip cockroach as they go about their lives in the US President's residence.

A cute show with clean jokes
1 August 2006 | by (upstate New York) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this show -- I taped every episode and watched them numerous times. I found the idea of seeing the capitol from the perspective of a mouse to be very interesting, and the animation, while not the best I've ever seen, was quite acceptable. And since I consider The Simpsons quite distasteful, I was glad that the humor on Capitol Critters was clean as well as funny.

The premise is familiar -- a character removed abruptly from his familiar surroundings (in this case a country mouse, Max, forced to leave the farm where he grew up) and finding his way around a new place (in Washington, where he's gone to live with relatives.) I liked the idea of the relatively naive Max taking on big issues and trying to make a difference.

I'm a fan of Neil Patrick Harris, so it was nice hearing him as the voice of Max.
