The endlessly-talking Little Blabbermouse finally shuts up at the end of the Warner Bros. cartoon Shop, Look and Listen (1940). But assistance is needed from a robot that ties up the annoying rodent in a package.
This is a spot gag cartoon but what’s different about it is writer Dave Monahan has avoided the usual off-screen narrator style to have an on-screen mouse (Bill Thompson in his W.C. Fields voice, according to expert Keith Scott) weave things together in a travelogue-style patter. Monahan’s gags are obvious and corny. The best part of the cartoon is when it ends.
