House Hunting Mice

House Hunting Mice is a 1947 animated short film from Warner Bros. Studios, that was produced in Cinecolor (the reissue was printed by Technicolor). Running for 7 minutes and starring mice Hubie And Bertie, the short was directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese and Tedd Pierce. and the voices were done by Mel Blanc and Stan Freberg.

In their search for cheese, the duo wanders into a model "home of tomorrow" and battle against the automated convenience features, including robots who sweep floors when they detect any foreign objects.

House Hunting Mice, among many other animated shorts, features the song "Powerhouse" by Raymond Scott when the automated sweeping robots pursue the two mice.


The cartoon was originally part of the Looney Tunes series. However the lobby card errorneously calls it a Merrie Melodie; presumably it was originally planned to be part of that series, but was changed at the last minute (and the lobby card was never withdrawn). Incidentally, the cartoon was later reissued as part of the Merrie Melodies Blue Ribbon program (the closing music remained unchanged from the original issue).

It is currently unknown if there is a print with the original closing rings.


This is one of those few AAP CN airings of cartoons, with the AAP card. However, a dubbed version does exist. It is unknown where these air.
