Motormouse and Autocat is a series of animated segments as part of the Cattanooga Cats, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for ABC's Saturday morning children's programming debuting. It ran from 1969 to 1971, airing 34 episodes that spanned two seasons.
In this twist on a Tom and Jerry-based plot, the series follows Autocat chasing Motormouse, who uses a motorcycle of his own, while using different vehicles in order to maintain his job at the Spin-Your-Wheels Garage as a mouse catcher, however, these schemes usually backfire on Autocat.
Although the series never saw a home media release, the episode "Wheelin' and Dealin'" was originally announced to be featured on the DVD, Best of Warner Bros. 25 Cartoon Collection: Hanna-Barbera, part of the Best of Warner Bros. series, but was removed for an unknown reason.
The score was composed by Hoyt Curtin.
