One of my favorite Sylvester shorts
I love seeing Sylvester be the good guy (or cat) for once. In this episode, the Drunken Stork accidentally delivers a baby mouse to Sylvester and his wife. Sylvester, initially excited, immediately wants to eat the little rodent upon discovering that it's a mouse but the wife will have none of it. Just before she leaves the house, she tells Sylvester to take Junior for a walk, and he takes it upon himself to make a Baby Mouse sandwich once she exits. Sylvester is about to take a bite when Junior pops out from between the 2 slices of bread and calls him Daddy. This gives the cat a sudden change of heart. But when he takes the little guy out for a walk, he suddenly has to protect him from every hungry cat in the neighborhood, all of which try various methods of breaking into the house and stealing the mouse, only to be foiled by Sylvester. And at the end we get a clever plot twist! As stated above, I love how we finally get to see Sylvester be the protagonist and foil his own kind, when it's usually him who gets foiled. My favorite part is when one of the cats disguises himself as Santa but Sylvester looks at the calendar and it says July. That's one of my favorite gags, seen in several Looney Toons shorts. Anyway, Sylvester ties a stick of dynamite to a balloon which he sends up the chimney and sends Santa cat flying. lol! And we get a 3 second shot of all the cats waiting outside the house, surrounding it. The music score for that short scene was perfect. And Junior, the baby mouse is adorable, especially when he sees the slice of cheese (used as bait by the Stork) and goes "babblebabblebabblebabble ... cheese! :D" I remember watching this one years ago on Nickelodeon and I finally re-discovered it in 2013. It's just how I remembered.
