I seen a video of this cartoon online some weeks ago. This silent short is one of the early cartoons of the "Aesop's Fables" started by Paul Terry. Only a handful of shorts in the series are based on the original fables themselves because Paul Terry said he never heard of Aesop at the time.

The cartoon shows a cat and mouse who are good team in losing the cop that goes after them on the highway. But when they take the job of window washing at Farmer Al's home is where they have a fallout. The cat does clean the window but uses the mouse to clean it instead of a sponge. The mouse doesn't take it too kindly, and therefore hurls a pail at the cat, prompting them to go into a chase.

What I really like about the short is the beautiful melody that plays at the opening scene. I cannot imagine a melody more beautiful than that. As for the gags and the story, it's entertaining enough.

Because Krazy Kat shorts were a hit at the time, there's also some influence from those shorts in this. Some time after the fallout, the mouse tosses a brick on the cat's head. Pretty reminiscent.
