Do Cats Eat Bats?
15 January 2008 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Der Fledermaus, aka Mighty Mouse, battles a bunch of bat-winged cats from a mysterious planet. The format of Mighty Mouse rarely varied: sometimes it was mock opera, featuring Pearl Pureheart and Oil-Can Harry, but mostly it consisted of Mighty Mouse beating up a bunch of cats. There is little doubt of the success of the formula for Paul Terry's cut-rate shop -- he lasted forty years in the business, far longer than other, more talented cartoon producers, but he did it by staying within his budget and producing cheap cartoons that gave Fox something to offer for their packages. And because neither he nor his directors seemed to have much respect for what they did, thy did a technically competent job without anything of real value. Here, Connie Rasinski makes the cats scary and alien by sticking bat wings on them, and having MM pound on them a bit. Cue the cheering mice. Eh.
