In the year 80 AMM (After Mickey Mouse) on planet X the crime-syndicated Cats try to erase the Mouse-population once and for all. A scientist of the mice, prof. Fushimishi seems to have found the weapon against the threat - so Intermouse calls it's best, but now retired agent - Nick Grabowsky - to get the plans. As a distraction for the Cats, they also send a second agent - Seargent Lazy Dick - for the mission.

Did You Know?
Number 13 appears an inordinate number of times in the film. Grabowski is said to have proclaimed himself Mickey Mouse 13th. Grabowski's cabin number on the M-Lines ship is 13. The first button that the Rat Racer's computer tells the rats to push is also 13. The number appears in the sequel as well. See more
The relative sizes of the characters change greatly between scenes. For example, Grabovszky easily fits inside a glass bottle dropped from a plane by rats (who are the same size as the cat pilot in that scene), but when the rats fight Grabovzsky they are almost his size; the cat hijackers on the plane are not much bigger than mice, even though in most scenes the cats are huge compared to mice; when Miguel drinks blood from a female cat, he's about her size, even though vampire bats are the size of a mouse in most scenes; and so on.

The Soviet theatrical version is almost 6 minutes shorter than the original. The following scenes do not appear in the Soviet version:
- Poljakov going out of Grabovzsky's house and driving away, with some additional dialog between the two
- Safranek's daughter playing with her mouse friend and being reprimanded for it by her father
- Teufel watching a presentation on various ways of penetrating mouse holes
- Teufel punishing Safranek for the third time. With this scene edited out, Safranek's broken tail in subsequent scenes remains a mystery
