The "Plot Summary" is exactly as in 1957...
9 September 2003 | by FrancesSparkmanSee all my reviews

The "Plot Summary" is exactly as in 1957's "Bugsy and Mugsy" short. All of the Plot, in both shorts are alike except "Characters" & ending. A: In 1950's "Stooge For A Mouse": There are three characters, they are "Sylvester", A Friendly Bull-dog + (a Mouse that schemes to make the bull-dog to dis-like "Sylvester). The Mouse is successful, until the concluding scene, in which it goes to the block of cheese, as it nears the table with cheese, a magnet, used by the mouse (above the ceiling)falls through hitting it, injuring it, after "Sylvester" and the Bull-dog are already injured. After the magnet hit the Mouse, the cartoon ends, showing "Sylvester", the "Bull-dog" & the "Mouse", all three are in the final scene & all three appear "lifeless". As this concludes, a "Home Sweet Home" sign falls from a wall and lands in front of the mouse, cat and dog. B: In 1957's "Bugsy and Mugsy", the plot is generally the same, as in 1950's "Stooge For A Mouse", except the "Characters" are: "Bugs Bunny", Rocky and Mugsy. In this short, "Bugs Bunny" does the same scheme: causing friends to become enemies, and achieves his goal, Rocky and Mugsy are captured and "Bugs Bunny" was not hurt, at all.
