Storyline

A mouse ventures out of his hole at a quarter after midnight. His tail gets caught in a mousetrap, but he escapes unharmed. It looks as if the coast is clear. He waves forth the other mice. Out they come, young and old, male and female, all ready to play music and have fun. But though the house is safe inside, outside lurks a very hungry cat. He manages to break inside and eat the cuckoo bird out of a clock for an appetizer. For his main course, he wants a mouse. But he'll have to deal with the entire mouse community, and their resourceful use of musical instruments as weapons, before he'll get one. Written by J. Spurlin

A Warner Brothers cartoon that is reminiscent of early Disney
11 January 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This cartoon has the look and feel of a Disney cartoon rather than the typical Warner Brothers cartoon. The singing and dancing mice, their antics and the general layout and design of the cartoon remind you more of Disney than anything else, but Warner Brothers was in the process of developing their distinctive style and traces of it can be seen here. Very good cartoon with a fairly well-developed plot. Well worth your time to watch, it shows up on Cartoon Network's Late Night Black and White periodically.
