Tale of Two Mice is a 1945 Looney Tunes cartoon. It was directed by an uncredited Frank Tashlin. It was reissued as A Tale of Two Mice.


Babbit and Catstello from "A Tale of Two Kitties" return, but this time they're mice. They attempt to steal cheese that is being guarded by a cat. Their schemes include past a sleeping cat, which doesn't go so well as Catstello runs off at first time, a small airplane and a rope and pull system.

On the now-defunct WB channel, the sequence in which Babbit's states, "If this don't work, then I'll be a jack-ass," followed by Catstello in a crashed toy airplane (that, to prove Babbit correct in his unflattering self-description, has not been effective in doing what Babbit had wanted), yelling, "Jack-ass! A jack-ass!" and braying like a donkey was cut.[1] Surprisingly, given that these channels edited Rebel Without Claws and I Was a Teenage Thumb to remove profanity ("damn" in the former cartoon short and "ass" in the latter), Cartoon Network and Boomerang have aired this cartoon uncut and uncensored.
