Sidney, a mouse thinking about his own lunch, is unperturbed when a cat declares that ``I'm going to eat you.'' Noticing a bounding dog, he rejoins, ``I don't think so.'' The dog pants, ``I'm going to chase you, cat.'' Again, not so: A goose plans to bite the dog's tail, but a fox sneaks up on the goose, and so on until an elephant proposes to sit on the lion before it can ``paw'' the goat that was going to butt the fox, and Sidney's friend Shirley, arriving with their lunch in a basket, shouts ``Boooo!'' All the other animals run home in a fright, but the two mice settle down to an elegant picnic.
