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.

Naughty But Mice was a very funny Herman cartoon
31 August 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Herman cartoon on YouTube as linked from a site devoted to Paramount cartoons. In this one, he's a city mouse visiting his country cousins but he finds out that not only are they in bandages but two of them are dead. So it's up to him to find this cat and give him the works. It's not easy but Herman manages to find some catnip which seems to do the trick...This was a very hilarious cartoon from when Herman does his thing to the ending. I mean, seeing that cat's eyes whenever he falls under the catnip's spell? Pure creative visuals that fill the funny-bone. And it's always a pleasure to hear the late Arnold Stang's voice in these vintage cartoons. So on that note, I highly recommend Naughty But Mice.
