Storyline

When boorish bumpkin Abner Countrymouse visits his flash cousin Morty Citymouse the ruffian is immediately impressed by the opulent spread of food on a grand feast table, but ignorantly digs into mustard and drowns the blazing thirst in champagne. Alas the symptoms of his drunkenness extend beyond hiccups to flippant arrogance, even kicking the cat, which starts him onto a roller-coaster of urban dangers... Written by KGF Vissers

Stop Being A Hick Stop
5 February 2002 | by jlgrosbeckSee all my reviews

So what if this is, as another reviewer noted, the stuff of a hundred Tom and Jerry cartoons to come? The character animation is the real attraction here, and it's excellent. This is some of the best drunken mouse animation I've ever seen, and that's saying something.

It's true, they've turned the actual storyline into a goofy succession of tabletop gags with a chaotic climax tacked on (much like the one to appear at the end of the Pink Elephants sequence in Dumbo), and so the short as a whole is somewhat less satisfying than it could be, but the individual sequences are all nice - I particularly liked the bit with the sliced bread, and the mirror routine straight out of Duck Soup. Monty just sort of disappears at the end, doesn't he? Oh well, so maybe it's not the most memorable thing ever, but it's still a polished piece of cartoonery, to be sure.
