Mighty Mouse comes to the aid of three mice who are stranded outside during winter by taking on the cat that won’t let them in the house.

Curiouser and curiouser. The three Mighty Mouse cartoons I’ve seen have all been quite different from each other; I’ve certainly not seen a standard plot. This one plays something like a Tom and Jerry cartoon; Mighty Mouse comes in the house dressed in a disguising trench coat and proceeds to torment the cat in typical cartoon fashion; in fact, he barely uses his superpowers in it. Furthermore, the singing is dropped here; in fact, not a word is spoken (or sung) during the length of the cartoon. Still, it’s a fairly average cartoon. And I’m becoming more curious about seeing more of the rest of the series, if for no other reason than to figure out if there is a standard plot, and if so, which cartoons are the anomalies.
