Mouse Taken Identity Lobby Card

Lobby Card (Color Version)

Mouse-Taken Identity is a 1957 Merrie Melodies cartoon.


Sylvester checks in to work at a museum with his son, Junior. He is bragging about his mouse-catching prowess, when the baby kangaroo, Hippety Hopper, having escaped from the zoo, turns up in the museum. Sylvester and Junior, as usual, mistake Hippety for a giant mouse and chase him around the exhibits, in an attempt to kill him.


  • ABC's The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show, deleted the scene wherein Sylvester Jr. "rescues" his father from being eaten by a stuffed lion's head by shooting a gun at it and thence into Sylvester's backside. Also deleted was Hippety Hopper in Indian garb and scalping Sylvester.
  • Nickelodeon edited out the aforementioned lion's head and gun scene.
