The Haunted Mouse is a 1941 Looney Tunes short directed by Tex Avery.


A cat is hungry and starving. He sees a sign that says ""Ma's Place/Home Cooking/3 Miles." He rushes into town at once, but neglects to read the part that says that the town full of 100 ghosts.  One of the ghosts happens to be a mouse, who wants revenge on cats for tormenting him all his life. The mouse decides that the cat would make a perfect target for torment, and sets out to ruin his life.
