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.

Familiar Story, But Herman Adds New Twists
13 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All the mice in this barn and starving and hurt. You know that from the arm slings, casts and the bandages on them. It looks like a hospital ward during a war. "We've got to get rid of that cat," one says. Does this story sound familiar?

Cousin Herman comes to visit. He's the wise guy with the straw hat, bow tie, cane and the New York City accent. He's brown while the other mice are all gray, whatever than signifies.

Herman wonders what's going on. "It's that new cat; he's a killer," says one beat-up old mouse. "Oh, yeah," replies Herman, "just leave it to your cousin Herman."

This is very familiar territory, except in different ways the mouse torments the cat and drives him away....well, sort of. Herman's a cocky guy and things don't always go as easy as he thinks they are going.

I've seen a few "Herman" cartoons and they're pretty good. With a little "restoration," they would look excellent and they weren't done on the cheap. There is some very good artwork and colors in here.

The scenes with the cat drugged on "instant catnip" are of the laugh-out-loud variety....surprisingly good material for a character that wasn't well-known. However, Herman had to have some success for 36 of these to be made.
