It's Got Me Again! (1932) Poster

Late at night, the mice come out and sing and play to the title tune, among others. That is, until the cat arrives, but he's quickly sent packing.

| It's Got Me Again! was interesting as the first Oscar-nominated cartoon from Warner Bros.
After so many years of seeing this early Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies cartoon short listed among the Oscar nominees for Best Short Subject-Cartoon/Animated in Leonard Maltin's book "Of Mice and Magic", I finally got to see this on YouTube. This was the first entry from the studio whose initials were trademarked as a shield that got an Academy Award nomination (It lost to Disney's Flowers and Trees). It concerned various mice who at night dance and play music until a cat threatens to spoil their fun. Quite entertaining musically with some amusing gags near the end when they attempt to chase away the cat. I especially like the creative way the mice used the record needle as a machine gun. If there's one caveat, it's that in many scenes the mice's faces look like Disney's Mickey. I've said a few times that because the directors-Hugh Harmon and Rudolf Ising-once worked for Uncle Walt during the Alice and Oswald days that they probably got that look by osmosis. Some have accused me of spreading lies since it's well known that Ub Iwerks created the famous mouse after Harmon-Ising left Disney. Maybe so, still I stand by my assumption that Hugh and Rudy probably drew the mice that way simply because Oswald looked similar when they worked on him. Having said all that, I'll just now say judge for yourself when you watch It's Got Me Again! on YouTube. P.S. While I've also seen Hold Everything, I didn't know of any similarities since it's been almost two years since I watched that and reviewed it here on IMDb.
