House Hunting Mice is a 1947 animated short film from Warner Bros., that was produced in Cinecolor (the reissue was printed by Technicolor). Running for 7 minutes and starring mice Hubie and Bertie, the short was directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese and Tedd Pierce, and the voices were done by Mel Blanc and Stan Freberg.

House Hunting Mice, among many other animated shorts, features the song "Powerhouse" by Raymond Scott when the automated sweeping robots pursue the two mice.


In their search for cheese, the duo wanders into a model "home of tomorrow" and battle against the automated convenience features, especially a robot that sweeps the floor when it detects any foreign objects. Just when they think they have won, Bertie accidentally summons the spring cleaning robots which ends with the two mice entangled in the carpet beating procedure.
