"Hoiman" and his ratty mice cousins, to escape the winter cold in Brooklyn, hop a streamliner going to Florida.

Herman utilizes very mechanical device available to derail Katnip, and finally uses some war-surplus equipment to shoot Katnip out in space. He lands at the North Pole and is freezing while the mice are living it up on a Miami beach. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Dave Tendlar directs this very good Herman & Katnip cartoon. Herman and some friends are taking the train down south. Katnip, who is riding the rails, hears them singing the series theme and tries to get a snack, only to suffer the usual painful indignities.

Although there is nothing outstanding about this cartoon, Dave Tendlar directs it very nicely as a virtual silent comedy. Although there is the usual nice musical background, there is no dialogue until halfway through the short, and that's a superfluous comment by Katnip. Although Famous Studios lacked the sharp adult focus of the glory days when the Fleischer Brothers ran the factory that produced Paramount's cartoons, this is a typically good cartoon from the company.
