Storyline

Under Captain Herman, work for each mouse-sailor is more like play. But the fun ends when they bring aboard a castaway who turns out to be Katnip the Pirate. An eyepatch and a peg leg are no indications of serious handicaps to this mean, knife-wielding villain of the sea. Soon all the mice are chased off the ship and onto the life raft they had "rescued" Katnip from. The captain immediately sneaks back on deck, determined that Katnip will go down, but not with his ship. Written by J. Spurlin

Blow the Mice Down, But Blow the Cat Up
8 October 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The early Herman & Katnip cartoons, in which the plucky mouse with the Bugs Bunny accent rescues his comrades are very good. To me, they play with the same little-guys-versus-the-big-guys idea as the Mighty Mouse series at Terry, but with gag series that are actually funny. By the time this one was made, the series had declined a bit. Now they ran the scenarios through assorted movie genres. The construction was standardized and the gags tended to be very violent, but beautifully set up.

In this one, Katnip is a pirate who takes over the mice's ship, until Herman goes and beats him up. The best set-up series of gags involves Katnip's peg leg, but the others are well constructed. It's not a great cartoon, but highly watchable with good production values, especially Winston Sharples' typically fine orchestration and Robert Connavale's backgrounding.
