It's Got Me Again! is an American Pre-Code Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies animated short film. It was originally released on May 14, 1932. It is one of the first films released under the Merrie Melodies brand and the first nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1932. The title refers to the song "It's Got Me Again!" (music by Bernice Petkere, lyrics by Irving Caesar) which plays during the cartoon.
The cartoon depicts a tribe of cartoon Mickey Mouse-like mice who move and dance through a room filled with musical instruments, while the song It's Got Me Again! plays on a gramophone. When a hungry cat shows up and tries to eat the mice, most of them escape—but one mouse is trapped. Luckily, he is rescued by the others, who use their musical instruments as weapons against the cat.
It's Got Me Again! is available as a bonus feature on disc 2 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 3, but it was the Turner 1995 "dubbed version"
