What it is: Mighty Mouse cartoon

A gang of cats is capturing mice and turning them into mousicles for sale. Can Mighty Mouse come to their rescue?

This is one of the non-operatic Mighty Mouse cartoons, which means it’s mostly about Mighty Mouse fighting some evil cats to save a bunch of mice. This is one of those cartoons that illustrates why Terrytoons remained a second-tier animation company. It has plenty of gags, but executes them weakly and without imagination. It also wastes opportunities; though the cartoon is framed in the device of being presented as a radio show, the cartoon does absolutely nothing with the idea. This one feels as if it was churned out with very little care to fill a quota. It may be one of the weakest Mighty Mouse cartoons I’ve seen.
