The Two Mouseketeers ★★★

Yet another fairly obvious and predictable Tom and Jerry short, though this one shows more Warner Bros.-style sensibilities than the other T&J shorts on this compilation DVD. The music is more prominent, and the gags show more whimsy and cleverness than the earlier shorts. I was amused, for instance, by the mice using the pig's tail as a corkscrew to open a bottle of champagne. It's still a pretty vapid display of violence, but at least it shows some whimsy and focus. An awfully dark ending, though!
