  • show Description
  • In this Hanna-Barbera show, Motor Mouse lives in the Spin Your Wheels garage, where it's the job of Auto Cat to get rid of him, only to fail time after time. (But all's not war and thorns--often, at the end of the day, Motor Mouse will give Auto Cat a lift home.) Motormouse & Autocat first appeared with sixteen episodes as part of the back segments to the Cattanooga Cats show. The following year on September 12, 1970, the hour-long show was split into two half-hours.moreless

    • Autocat: (driving into the shop in his drag car) Now to put the chute out and come to a nice clean stop. (he activates the chute and the car stops but he doesn't) The supercharger works great, but there are still a few bugs in that chute. (he slams into a pole)

    • Autocat: (the mallet on his car smashes a boulder and sweeps it into a dust pan) I like to do things nice and neat. I'm no litter cat you know.

    • Motormouse: (has birthday cake) Hey, Autocat! Where ya goin'? Hey, you ain't made your wish yet. Autocat: A wish, huh. I wish I'd never gotten out of bed this morning, that's what I wish.

    • Autocat: There's more than one way to skin a mouse.

    • Autocat: Oh boy! Oh boy! Motormouse doesn't stand a chance against this monster. Three gas turbines should give me a speed of...Oh, four hundred miles an hour.

    • Autocat: This will do it. A fuel injected, super charged harpoon wagon guaranteed to bust up any party.

    • Autocat: What's this? (gets piece of paper that Motormouse dropped) The little pipsneek must have dropped it.

    • Autocat: Two can play at this game and may the smarty cat win.
