A Sunbonnet Blue is a 1937 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Tex Avery.

Plot

After the "Snobby hatte Shoppe" closes for the night, a mouse comes out of his hole and looks to see if the coast is clear. He turns on the lights and then calls his other mouse friends out to party. His girlfriend leaves the hole last, watched by a jealous rat. When the couple take a break from dancing, the rat kidnaps her. Her boyfriend rallies his friends to find her. The mice under each type of hat in the store adopt the personalities the hats suggest, such as farmers, firemen, or soldiers. A "blind" mouse points the way to the kidnapper and our hero saves his girlfriend. The face shield of a knight's helmet serves as jailbars for the rat. Soon our happy couple marry, wearing an enormous top hat and veil.

Notes

Susie and Johnny make another appearance in The Mice Will Play.

Final cartoon to have stock music from the end into the end titles.

The original Blue Ribbon end title is lost due to the 1995 dubbed version being released on LaserDisc. It DOES NOT survive through CN Latin America.
