From Hand to Mouse is a 1944 Looney Tunes short directed by Chuck Jones.

Plot Edit

A dimwitted lion has caught a fast-talking mouse (resembling Chuck Jones' creation Hubie and Bertie) to eat. The mouse pleads the lion to spare him, hoping that some day the mouse will be able to help the lion, as in the story of "The Lion and the Mouse". The lion releases the mouse, only for the mouse to trick him by shouting "Sucker!", causing the infuriated dumb lion to repetitively knock his head onto the tree.

The mouse then talks the not-so-bright lion into releasing him on several occasions, all with the same result of the lion getting tricked by the mouse (The mouse shouts "Sucker!" causing the infuriated dumb lion to repetitively knock him head onto the tree). And when a gorilla whom is no brighter than the lion himself interferes with the lion by using it as a "toy", it's up to the mouse to save the lion by replacing the lion with a bomb which explodes after the gorilla plays with it, hence living up to his promise to the lion.

The lion and the mouse are about to make peace and become allies, when the mouse tricks the dumb lion again by making him fall off the cliff by stepping on a tree branch. The lion, now having been tricked by the mouse all along, gets frustrated, loses his sanity, and repetitively shouts into the mirror, "Sucker!"

Censorship Edit

Notes Edit

  • The short is a parody of Aseop's Fable "The Lion and the Mouse".
