Comments

From Rod Bennett : The title pun seems to have inspired this entire short, long before anyone thought of applying it to members of TV's "Mickey Mouse Club." The Bad Guy in this one -- the villainous Captain Cat -- is simply Peg Leg Pete sans deformity (but still with Billy Blecher's inimitable voice).
From Jerry Edwards : Simply - this stinks! Except for the well-done special effects of the mouse reflections in the collection of bottles (making it appear to be a mouse army and scaring away the cat), the story and art is so haphazard there is little there to keep my interest. I find the mice so irritating that I find myself rooting for the cat.
From Ryan : I didn't really care much for this short (as I'm not a big fan of the Silly Symphonies). It was rather dumb and not very funny at all. The cat should have gotten the mice and done away with them.
From Mike G : The three blind mice characters do not have much appeal-- not to mention there are several occasions when they do things they plainly would need to see to be able to do! The gags showing how they elude the cat are obvious and rarely ingenious definitely a lesser Silly Symphony.
