With the homeowners away and the cat sleeping, two mice plot and execute a plan to steal a chunk of cheese from the refrigerator.
Frank Tashlin had just taken over Columbia's cartoon department and provided the script under his pen name of 'Tish Tash' and Art Davis, who had been working for Columbia's cartoon department for a decade -- and who would head off to Schlesinger's cartoon factory in a few more years -- is credited as director. But how much was his actual choice? Given the extreme point-of-view shots that populate this cartoon and the highly mobile camera -- both hallmarks of Tashlin's cartoon work -- it seems more likely that Davis took the role of lead animator after Tashlin had set up the basics.
Whoever actually was in charge, this is a pretty good cartoon with a well-timed series of cartoons forcing a frantic pace. Not a classic by any means, it is still a lot of fun.
