Tale of Two Mice is a 1945 Warner Bros. cartoon in the Looney Tunes series, directed by Frank Tashlin. It is a sequel to 1942's A Tale of Two Kitties, with the Abbott and Costello characterizations ("Babbit and Catstello") now cast as mice. They are voiced by Tedd Pierce and Mel Blanc respectively.


Babbit sends Catstello to get some cheese from the refrigerator putting Catsello in danger and peril with a cat, until finally Catsello obtains a block of cheese. Babbit doesn't want it, as he doesn't like Swiss cheese. Fed up with Babbit's bossiness, Catsello force feeds Babbit the Swiss cheese.

Edited versions[edit]

  • The (now defunct) WB! channel cut a scene where Catstello asks Babbit if flying on a toy plane to get the cheese will work, with Babbit stating that if it doesn't work, then he's a jackass, and when the plane crashes back in the mouse hole, Catstello bellows, "Jackass! A jackass!" and brays like a donkey.
