I've long wondered what's the deal with the image of the inebriated stork. Whatever it is, it leads to a pretty funny cartoon here, as the alcoholic bird delivers a baby mouse to Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester, and Sylvester becomes enamored with the little guy and has to protect him from the rest of the cats in the neighborhood.

Was "A Mouse Divided" the best Looney Tunes cartoon ever? No, far from it. Some parts were clearly lifted out of the Bugs Bunny vehicle "Gorilla My Dreams". What I like in this cartoon is the extent to which Sylvester goes to keep the hungry felines from eating the mouse (including a dynamite gag; those guys sure had a way with TNT). It's a nice, fun way to pass time.

He doesn't get it from my side of the family. Some arguments seem to continue forever.
