: : : In this clever parody of "The Jack Benny Show," Jack and company are caricatured as mice. Jack decides to take Mary to the Kit Kat Club. They go there in a mouse-sized Maxwell. Unknown to them, the nightclub is the mouth of a real cat. They notice that there's no one else there, and Jack plays his violin. But it's too late. The cat closes its mouth, trapping them. Jack calls for help. Then, we see the real Jack Benny (live action) waking up in his chair. He dismisses the cartoon as just a dream; until he sees the animated mice escape from his cat's mouth!
: : : i know this sounds awful but that cartoon isn't available on video or DVD...my advice is to watch Cartoon Network's "Bugs and Daffy Show" or any classic Warner Brothers compilation series on Boomerang and maybe luck out and catch an airing of it....i've searched everywhere for that and can't find it.
: Check with the folks on our Tape Trading List (see Programs, then Tape Trading List). I think one or more of them may have it. It's well worth the search!
