The Small Mice
21 April 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Paul Terry and Frank Moser produce a fine, serious late silent cartoon by largely going the von Sternberg route as honest mice fight for love despite the depredation of the cat gangsters.

They accomplish this by some very clever use of the standard rubber tube animation of the era to indicate the mice' small size and by extensive use of large buildings in the background, all slightly misshapen, indicating their scale. There are the usual number of decently executed gags here, but they largely serve to advance the plot and actually are atmospherically threatening, rather than flat out funny. All too soon, the cartoons would finish their adaptation to sound and would spend the next couple of years concentrating more on sound gags, but this stands out as something that works best as a silent.
