From RareSox :

This short is great for a multitude of reasons. It takes an rather formulaic format of the Cat and Mouse genre, and employs black magic to make the gags stand out as innovative. The short can be sadistic with it's gags at times, but it's usually often played for laughs instead of coming as disturbing to the viewer. It's worth checking out if you're curious to see how Famous tackled the Cat and Mouse formula before phoning things in during the 1950s.
