Captain, a brave dog and police captain of the forest, must outwit his archenemy, Zero the Cat, a master of disguise and fraud, who plans to make a bundle, even if it means leaving all the forest critters homeless.
In the year 80 AMM (After Mickey Mouse) on planet X the crime-syndicated Cats try to erase the Mouse-population once and for all. A scientist of the mice, prof. Fushimishi seems to have found the weapon against the threat - so Intermouse calls it's best, but now retired agent - Nick Grabowsky - to get the plans. As a distraction for the Cats, they also send a second agent - Seargent Lazy Dick - for the mission.Written by
Number 13 appears an inordinate number of times in the film. Grabowski is said to have proclaimed himself Mickey Mouse 13th. Grabowski's cabin number on the M-Lines ship is 13. The first button that the Rat Racer's computer tells the rats to push is also 13. The number appears in the sequel as well. See more »
The relative sizes of the characters change greatly between scenes. For example, Grabovszky easily fits inside a glass bottle dropped from a plane by rats (who are the same size as the cat pilot in that scene), but when the rats fight Grabovzsky they are almost his size; the cat hijackers on the plane are not much bigger than mice, even though in most scenes the cats are huge compared to mice; when Miguel drinks blood from a female cat, he's about her size, even though vampire bats are the size of a mouse in most scenes; and so on.

The Soviet theatrical version is almost 6 minutes shorter than the original. The following scenes do not appear in the Soviet version:
Poljakov going out of Grabovzsky's house and driving away, with some additional dialog between the two
Safranek's daughter playing with her mouse friend and being reprimanded for it by her father
Teufel watching a presentation on various ways of penetrating mouse holes
Teufel punishing Safranek for the third time. With this scene edited out, Safranek's broken tail in subsequent scenes remains a mystery
This movie is my favorite cartoon of my childhood. It is still my favorite, and is best viewed in it's original Hungarian version (if you speak the language, or course). It is basically a James Bond style cartoon, where the cats and mice are at war. It is up to Grabovszky and the help of his friends to stop the cats. This cartoon has many memorable characters, such as the musical Mexican bats, led by Maxipocak, the meddling gangster rats Pissy, Cookie, Buddy, and Billy, the bumbling police officer Lusta Dick, the evil Mr. Teufel and his meek assistant Safranek, and the "don" of the gangster cats, Mr. Gato. This cartoon is a classic. It should be on the Top 250. I have seen the English translation, and it isn't nearly as good as the original, but it is still great.
