The Mouse-Merized Cat is a 1946 Warner Bros. cartoon in the Looney Tunes series, directed by Robert McKimson. It is a sequel to 1942's Tale of Two Mice, with the Abbott and Costello characterizations ("Babbit and Catstello") cast as mice. They are voiced by Tedd Pierce and Mel Blanc respectively.

Plot[edit]

The short takes place in a cheese shop. Babbit with much effort and resistance from Catstello, finally manages to hypnotize Catstello into foolishly and recklessly stealing cheese while cat is fully on watch. Then Catstello stands up to the cat, who gets wise to Catstello's trance and hypnotizes him into going back into the mouse hole. After a series of Catstello being in trance cause by both Babbit and the cat, Catstello grows tired of this and hypnotizes the both of them making Babbit a wild western rider and the cat as his steed. As they ride off out the shop, Catstello happily eats the cheese remarking "Oh — I'm a baaaaad boy!".

Censorship[edit]

Cartoon Network cuts out a brief moment where Babbit turns Catsello into "Eddie 'Rochester Anderson" receiving a phone call from Jack Benny.
