Storyline

Herman, the city-slicker mouse (looking like a cross between James Cagney and Lee Tracy) visits his barn-mice cousins in the country. There he sees that the barn also has a cat, and Katnip the Kat, is one mean dude who has put most of Herman's relatives on crutches and in slings, and even dispatched a couple of them to Mice Heaven. It is up to city-wise Herman to outwit the country-wise cat but the country cat has been to a couple of County Fairs himself, and proves to be nearly more than Herman can handle.

How many cartoons have used the clever-mouse-clobbers-hapless-cat routine?
16 June 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I think that I saw a Herman Mouse cartoon back when I was in kindergarten or something; I found it funny, but the series never really drew me in. Now that I've seen "Naughty But Mice" (on YouTube, no less), I have to say that it follows a plot line used in a number of cartoons: a group of mice want some cheese guarded by a lascivious cat, and then an ingenious mouse enters the fray and makes mincemeat out of the feline.

It's an OK cartoon, but the nearly formulaic plot line weakens it. And why does it always seem like cats are the antagonists in cartoons? I've always liked the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons the best (in fact, they made their own cartoon called "Naughty But Mice", starring the cute-by-any-measure mouse Sniffles). Acceptable in a pinch.
