Before they can invade the house, mice Hubie and Bertie must first deal with "Champion Mouser" Claude Cat (making his first appearance in a Warner Bros. cartoon). They decide to drive the high-strung feline insane by, among other things, nailing the furniture and rugs to the ceiling while Claude's asleep.Written by

In the original print of the film, Claude Cat, after being driven insane, tries one last and desperate time to reclaim his house. He climbs down the house's chimney, but is singed by the fire that Hubie and Bertie build in the fireplace. In the release print, this scene was replaced with Hubie and Bertie enjoying their new home in front of the fireplace, which fades into the familiar Warner Bros. cartoon end-title concentric circles rather than the traditional iris-out.

Hubie and Bert doing what they do best-causing no end of trouble
This cartoon short, an Oscar nominee, features Hubie and Bert ("Yeah, yeah, sure, sure") tormenting poor Claude for the first time. Poor Clude didn't fare terribly well in any of his cartoons, either with Hubie and Bert or in other cartoons, but this is by far the most devastatingly funny appearance by any of them. You really get to feel quite sorry for poor Claude after a while here. He just happens to be in the way here. He doesn't do anything to deserve this nightmare. He's simply there. Recommended.
