No mouse is safe when Ricky's Rat Gang is around! A load of sugar has been spilt in the supermarket storeroom, which means a sticky feast for Mel, Max and Molly Mouse. But their arch enemies, Ricky and Ronnie Rat, want in on the action. Complete with shades and macs, and armed with water balloons, the gangster brothers raid the store. But the mice aren't going to give up without a fight! With a dastardly plan involving a trail of dog biscuits they cleverly lead the nightwatchman's dog to find the rats and chase them away. It's the mice's first victory in their long-standing battle with the rats. After such a historic event the sugar mountain tastes all the sweeter!
