Paul Terry must have been feeling pretty flush when he made this cartoon. Not only is it clearly a Pre-Code cartoon with a cartoon mouse bopping his sweetie on the head after leaving a saloon; there is also some very elaborate backgrounding. There's a sequence in an automobile with power lines overhead. Their movement provides a forced perspective that gives the sequence a far more three-dimensional look than is common for Terry's work.
Terry usually produced his cartoon on tight budgets and schedules and aimed them at small children. The rather adult content of this one may startle those more used to Mighty Mouse. I find it pretty entertaining.
