Cheese Chasers 10 out of 5 stars

Funniest in Series!

Reviewed by: Ponti,

Funniest in series! And the last in series. No one wants to live in this short. No one has anything to live for. No one knows why Jones stoped the series.

Brilliant "reversal-of-roles" for all characters involved. Not many directors could have made this work as well as Jones did. One of the many reasons he's one of my all-time favourite directors of Looney Tunes or anything!!

Cheese Chasers 6 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by: Matthew Hunter,

Hubie and Bertie (Mel Blanc and Stan Freberg) eat too much cheese and find themselves sick of it. Deciding that there is nothing for a mouse to live for if he doesn't want cheese, they decide to commit suicide by making Claude Cat eat them. Claude thinks the mice are poisoned, ("Something rotten in Denmark!") and continually spits them out. Claude thinks he's going crazy, and does such neurotic stuff as getting himself a hobby building ships in bottles (he's in the bottle, the ship's outside!) and looking up his problems in books just so he can make a paper Napopleon hat out of the page! Claude decides that if he can't eat mice, there is nothing left for HIM to live for. Thus, he goes outside to the dog house and asks Marc Anthony (his only speaking appearance) to massacre him! The dog, confused by all this, lines up all the characters (Hubie, Bertie, Claude, and even the cheese!) as "exhibits", court-room style. This further confuses the dog,using a typewriter, because: "Mice don't wanna eat cheese. Mice want cat to eat them. Cat don't want to eat mice. But cat wants dog to massacre him! IT JUST DON'T ADD UP!!!!" Marc Anthony runs for the dog catcher van, wiith Claude right behind him ("Aren't you gonna massacre me?") and Hubie and Bertie chasing the cat. Hilarious cartoon, this is the last Hubie and Bertie cartoon, and one of the best. Chuck Jones has long been called a master of personality in cartoons, this really shows the idea. There is also a very dark undertone to this cartoon, which many of Chuck Jones'1950's cartoons have. Also of note, this is the last time Claude Cat is portrayed as a neurotic good guy, he is from here onward portrayed as jealous and evil against such adversaries as Marc Anthony and Frisky Puppy.
