What it is: Mighty Mouse cartoon
Lions break loose at the mouse circus. Can Mighty Mouse save the circus people?
For every Mighty Mouse cartoon worth catching, there seems to be four or five that can safely be skipped. This is one of the latter group. The story is utterly routine. It appears to be part of a group of cartoons where his adventures are presented like a radio show; I know I’ve seen at least one other of these that did so. Still, I will give it a bit of credit; though it’s not playing for laughs, it does have a few gags that almost work; my favorite is discovering what animal serves as the lady mouse acrobat’s trapeze partner.
