Storyline

At the home of Austrian composer Johann Strauss, lived Johann Mouse. Whenever the composer played his waltzes, the mouse would dance to the music, unable to control himself. One day, when Strauss was away, the house cat played his master's music. This forced the mouse to dance, providing the cat with a chance to pounce on him. When word got out about a piano playing cat and a dancing mouse, they were commanded to perform for the emperor. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Hilarious and wonderful for the eyes and ears
16 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I love Tom and Jerry, and I especially love shorts like The Cat Concerto, so I was really looking forward to seeing this when I first heard of it six months ago. And I wasn't disappointed at all and it has become a favourite since, it is hilarious, inventive and original. The animation is wonderful, really colourful and vibrant and all the characters are drawn really well. Another outstanding element is the music, in fact the music is one of the main reasons why I love Johann Mouse so much. The chemistry between Tom and Jerry is delightful, and both characters are likable and endearing. The cartoon also moves really quickly, the story is engaging and Hans Conreid(who also voiced Captain Hook in Disney's Peter Pan) is great as the narrator. Overall, delightful for any animation or music fan. 10/10 Bethany Cox
