Two brothers attempt to rid a derelict mansion they hope to inherit of a mouse which scurries around it.
This cartoon-like slapstick farce has a dark, gothic undertone to it, making it just as enjoyable for adults as it would be for children. A busy mix of Laurel & Hardy and Tom & Jerry, though I prefer to think of it as a rodent's equivalent of Home Alone.
