I don't believe I knew it at the time, but I found out this show originally aired as part of a kid/cartoon show block on HBO, HBO Family or one of those HBO channels. The way I remember seeing, at least bits of it, was on Saturdays on the channel formerly known as the WB. It might had been broadcasted on both of those channels around that same time. But anyway, since it's now being repeated as part of the morning cartoons block on Light TV, I checked out a number of episodes more and they are educating, and entertaining.

In this spin of the Country Mouse and City Mouse story set in the early 20th century, the series follows two mice named Alexander (from the city) and Emily (from the country) who travel around the world. In each episode, they're in a different country and these two cousins aren't the only ones we see in here.They have cousins from around the globe and together they encounter kids of varying nationalities, and they help them out in some way, such as coming to their rescue. Some episodes also feature historical figures. While the mice come across several villains as well, the main one is a rat known as No-Tail No-Goodnik, who is so-called because he wears a prosthetic tail that is sometimes prone to coming off loose. After coming to someone's aid or solving a problem, most episodes usually closed with a group photo being taken and Alexander, and Emily, back at home discussing the adventure they had. In some cases, this program is essentially a look at and imagined as "what if mice had played a part in bringing about historical events"? in this alternate reality.

Everything about this is perfectly well-done, from the writing to the animation to the characters to the voices to the music. In addition, the episodes contain some sort of lesson or another. One of the better '90s shows. Definitely worthy enough to be award-nominated and winning. Worthy of watching as well and recommended.
