the McTavish's sole mouse in hopes of receiving ever more lavish
This is a pretty good one-shot cartoon, which I attribute as largely
due to Bob Clampett's input and to a good script by two old Termite
Terrace hands. Clampett's hand is indicated by the over-the-top
elements, particularly the ridiculous Scots accents assumed by the
uncredited voice artist -- it takes five or ten seconds to get through
each R that McTavish pronounces.
The cartoon's producers, Binder and Katz, had worked for Leon
Schlesinger and knew how to get talent and leave them alone. However,
Columbia was already going in a different direction with UPA.
