In this devastating attack on pre-WW2 appeasement efforts, a group of happy mice enjoy some water sports in a kitchen sink while singing "Ain't We Got Fun?" Enter the villain, a Nazilike cat with a master plan. Gaining the confidence of a particularly stupid mouse, the cat convinces the rodent to persuade the other mice to become the cat's slaves, in exchange for an endless supply of cheese. To the tune of "Blues in the Night", the "Quisling" mouse does the cat's dirty work, only to discover that he and his friends are slated to become the cat's dinner. The tune quickly changes to "We Did It Before and We Can Do It Again" as the now-militant mice form a united front against the duplicitous feline.
