This is a lively little cartoon from Lantz' unit at Universal, a tad before he wound up owning the division, starring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. It's not much by modern standards, certainly, being basically a series of gags set to a score, but it is noteworthy as being a fine example of the 'rubber tube' style of animation that was used from about 1925-1935, until replaced by the 'animated egg' style that Disney pioneered. In 'rubber tube' a lot of the animation gags involved the characters stretching and distorting -- notice the way Oswald gets contorted during the chase sequence.
The title seems to be randomly chosen and it might have been better called something like 'NOISY NEIGHBORS as various nephews come and visit -- they all seem to be cats. But it's all done in high good humor.
