Synopsis

Porky is unable to sleep due to noisy, food-stealing mice; a cat comes in and builds an elaborate Rube Goldberg-style trap that successfully incapacitates the mice, allowing quick disposal of them. Just as Porky believes he can go back to sleep, however, the cat invites fellow felines in for a drunken orgy! Trying to throw them out causes backlashes, and a dog only joins in with the drunk cats; in the end, Porky has no choice but to sing the night away with the animals.
